Summer 2015 Family Orientation

The family orientation program allows parents, spouses or family members to meet with administrators from key offices to learn about important support services available on campus. New students are not expected to attend these sessions as they overlap with orientation programs for the students. However, family members are encouraged to attend the family orientation program scheduled on the same day that "their" student attends orientation.

There will be seven family orientation programs held on these dates:

  • June 8

  • June 10 

  • June 15
  • June 17

  • June 22 

  • June 25 

  • August 24

The schedule for the Family Orientation begins at 8:45 am and concludes by 2 pm.

Students will be able to sign up for family orientation when they sign up for their orientation session in Navigator. Sign up will begin Monday, March 2, 2015.
