Part B is First Four, dynamic four-day program designed for new EMU students to help show you the ins and outs of college life at Eastern Michigan University.  Click here to learn more about your two part experience.

    Being a New Student Orientation Assistant (NSOA) is a great way to start the fall semester, gain an incredible leadership experience, and learn more about our campus. NSOAs are upperclass students who've been there and done that, and are volunteering to spread their wealth of EMU knowledge to EMU's newest, our first year students.
