Student with parents in residence hall.

Every year, on Move-In Day, we welcome both new students and their families to campus with Orientation programs. While students are meeting each other and settling in, the Family Orientation provides the opportunity to learn about the academic life students are beginning, gather information about campus services, and meet members of the campus community. Be sure to register to let us know you'll be here!

Please continue to visit this page for the 2018 Family Orientation Schedule.
