NSO Preceptorials Banner

New Student Orientation Preceptorials - informal, non-credit seminars on assorted topics - offered a unique way for first-year students to “Zoom in at Penn” and take a closer look at the cultural, social, and intellectual environment at Penn during NSO 2020. This year, all NSO Preceptorials took place in a virtual format, both synchronously and asynchronously. See below to browse through our archived catalog of offered sessions. Preceptorials are available to view on this website, and on NSOAI's YouTube Channel.
