Northern State University in Aberdeen will take some of its freshman orientation program online. Virtual events will begin in May to prepare new students for college life.
NSU usually holds five or six orientation days – or HOWL Days, which stands for Helping Our Wolves Learn. Justin Fraase is director of communications and marketing for the school. He says each one attracts up to 80 incoming freshman students. Typically they visit campus, register for classes and get acclimated.
Fraase says there are still a few in-person HOWL days scheduled for later this summer.
