UMass Amherst New Students Orientation

UMass Amherst New Students Orientation Welcome to UMass Amherst! We're a team of current students and professionals ready to help with your transition to campus! New Students Orientation welcomes all first year students, transfer students, and their families to UMass Amherst and assists them with the transition to our campus and community.
(1)

Through participation in orientation students learn about academic requirements and opportunities, residential living options, and possibilities for co-curricular engagement.

Mission: New Students Orientation welcomes students to the university community and introduces them to the academic and social facets of campus life. Throughout their participation in our summer and fall programs, students learn to successfully navigate the physical campus and are prepared to use the appropriate academic, support and extracurricular resources available to them.

I am not able to access any of the summer sessions for NSO - called the office and was told they are all full right now. Can someone explain that to me? Acceptance day was May 1 and now all sessions are full - told to keep trying and refreshing my page - there has to be a better way to do this!
