Family Orientation (during JumpStart) - July 15-16, 2013
Congratulations! Your family member is about to embark on a journey to receive a college education. You, as family members, can help make the college experience an enriching and memorable one. The Family Orientation Program is designed with this in mind.
Family Orientation (during NSO) - August 21-22, 2013
Family Orientation (Athletic Training Camp) - Specific dates will be sent later for football, volleyball, women's soccer, and men's soccer training camps.
We offer two Family Orientation programs, one in July during JumpStart Program and one in August during New Student Orientation (NSO). During orientation, family members learn about campus departments and services. Some featured departments include the Departments of Public Safety, Campus Life, Academic Advising, and Student Financial Services. The most popular workshop for both Family Orientation programs is the student panel with current students sharing their experiences and perceptions on college life.
There is no registration fee for Family Orientation. Families need to fill out the Family Orientation registration form online and send it in. After upon receipt of the form, we will receive a confirmation packet with more information about Family Orientation.
