2023 NSU’s Freshman Connection Held May 24th -25th, A Firm Foundation For Success!

The Northwestern State University Demon family welcomed 250 new members and their families at the first of several Freshman Connection sessions to be held throughout the summer at the picturesque NSU campus. The fast paced two-day event featured campus tours, financial aid sessions, class registration, dorm assignments and breakout sessions exploring various aspects of college life. The sessions were led by handpicked NSU students who either served as Freshman Connectors who led their color-coded student groups or as VIP Volunteers who did the logistical work of making the event run smoothly. The day’s activities weren’t all serious, however. “Freshman Follies” on the Iberville Green featured fun games designed to let the new Demons have some fun and get to know each other.

The fun sessions do have a serious purpose. When the new freshmen leave the Freshman Connection, they have everything they need to hit the ground running for their first year at NSU. They have their classes, financial aid and dorm assignments already. They have met some of their new classmates and are familiar with the campus, what is expected of them and where they can get help. BOM Bank, the official bank of Northwestern State University, sponsored sessions on how to build credit and its effect on your future life. The Freshman Connection Program is an excellent start to what we all hope will be a successful career at Northwestern State University.

This upcoming class is an impressive group of young people, hailing from every corner of Louisiana, as well as several states and foreign countries. Their Freshman Connectors are superb exemplars on how to make the most of every moment of your time at Northwestern.

Fork ‘em Demons!
