NSO logo - New Scots Orientation

Start Your Journey

You're finally ready to begin your Covenant Ascent, but first, you'll want to familiarize yourself with life as a Scot and prepare for a successful college career. The New Scots Orientation (NSO) experience at Covenant is designed to help new students make the transition to life in our mountaintop campus community.

 

 

New Scots Orientation

Connect

November 1, 2022
 
Every new student begins their introduction to college life from the comfort of home. In this virtual event, you'll become familiar with faces you'll regularly see on campus, making your transition in August even easier.
 
 
 

Engage

July 2023
 
A fun-filled summer option, Engage allows you to start building community before Move-In Day. Experience the uniqueness of our mountain-top location, and begin friendships with other new students, all while exploring Chattanooga's adventure opportunities.

Embark

January 6-8, 2023
 
It's finally time to embark on your Ascent! On Move-In Day, you and the rest of your classmates will make Covenant your home as you immerse yourself in campus life and experience the culture and traditions of being a Scot. Embark helps you handle the final details before you start a successful Covenant journey.
 
 
 

Connect | November 1, 2022

Get a jump start on the orientation process from the comfort of your own home with Connect, our online orientation program. Connect is a required step for new students that offers the opportunity to hear from student life leaders and faculty, take your placement tests, pre-register for classes, and more!

Parents will have their own online Connect opportunity as well.

 

Engage | July 2023

Spend a few days on campus in our optional Engage pre-orientation session. At Engage, you'll have a chance to:

  • experience the great outdoor life on Lookout Mountain and the surrounding area
  • see your room for the first-time
  • connect with faculty advisors
  • complete placement testing
  • get a preview of life as a Scot!

*Note: A $150 fee is required for Engage

Embark | January 6-8, 2023

After Connect, every new student starts their Ascent on campus with Embark. In the week before classes start, you'll move in, meet the Covenant community, take care of final details before classes begin, and begin experiencing academic, spiritual, and professional development.

"I wasn't sure what to expect from orientation, but it's been the most refreshing experience ever. I feel like I got to know the group of people I was with way better. Orientation has really upped my expectations of Covenant, and now I'm just really excited for classes to start.”
- Anna Beth C.
