For press information, contact Kate Howard, 901-678-2566

The University of Memphis will host more than 1,900 college orientation leaders, staff members and students March 15-17 for the Southern Regional Orientation Workshop (SROW), the Region VI Conference of the National Orientation Directors Association (NODA).

Region VI is the largest NODA region, comprising nine states – Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. Region VI is known for its NODA involvement, spirit and energy, and it is the annual home to NODA’s largest regional conference: SROW. This year’s conference is themed “Blue Suede SROW.”

Professionals and students will have an opportunity to network and learn about orientation and transition trends in higher education. In addition to educational sessions, activities will include undergraduate and graduate case study competitions; a song, skit and dance competition; a service project; and T-shirt and banner competitions.

“We are delighted to host such a large regional conference at the University of Memphis and to play host to 1,700-plus undergraduate students from colleges and universities across the southeastern United States,” said Kate Howard, conference co-chair and the U of M’s senior associate director of Admissions for Recruitment and Orientation. “Our hope is that students and professionals walk away with the ability to implement best practices in the field of orientation at their home institutions.”

More information is available online at or by phone at 901-678-2566.
