Parent and Family Program
Parents and family members are invited (and encouraged) to participate in the concurrent Parent/Family Orientation program. The Parent and Family Program is designed to introduce you to the broad academic and social aspects of the University community. You will have the opportunity to meet representatives from the academic colleges, to participate in campus services presentations, and to see firsthand many of the wonderful University resources available to new students. Parents and family members will also interact and network with each other.
The Undergraduate Student Fee supports first year student orientation costs, including the opportunity to have two complimentary guests participate in the Parent and Family Program. Students will automatically be billed this fee up on enrollment; more information may be found on the Student Financial Services website. There are additional costs for additional guests (above the two complimentary), as well as for guest housing should you choose to stay on campus. Added costs must be paid at the time of registration by credit card.
Family members of students who wish to experience campus life may elect to stay on campus overnight. Guest housing is available on a first-come, first-serve basis and pre-registration is required. Guest housing registration will close one week from your selected session, or earlier if we reach capacity. We have included a list of hotels for those who prefer off-campus accommodations.
On-campus guest housing is in upper-class, apartment style, air conditioned rooms. Though we do our best to accommodate single attendees in single occupancy apartments, there are times that we need to place two single attendees in a double occupancy apartment. Each guest would be provided a separate bedroom but common spaces (living room/bathroom) would be shared.
