Gallaudet University and Student Success are thrilled to provide virtual orientation programs to the parents and families of our incoming students.
Gallaudet University recognizes the importance of a family's role in their student's success. We value providing support for students in a multitude of ways, and encourage student's families to attend the Family Orientation Program (FOP). We understand that sending your student off to college is a significant milestone, and the transition requires adjustment. FOP is here to make that transition as smooth as possible.
We offering Family Virtual Orientation Program Webinar:
During FOP, families will receive an overview of the campus resources that will aid in your student's overall success here at Gallaudet. Families will be able to meet our University's faculty and staff from various departments to answer questions about campus/student safety, residence life, student services, and more. Most importantly, parents and families will have the opportunity to meet one another and connect through a shared experience.
We strongly encourage your participation. You will acquire a depth of knowledge and perspective on how to support your student's transition here at Gallaudet.
