Parents and Guests
At July Orientation, we host a special program for parents and guests of first-year students.
First college-bound student or last… preparing for college is tough for everyone!
At this Parent and Guest Program, we tailor information specifically so we can properly address all of your important questions, concerns, and to-do items.
All new incoming freshmen are assigned to a Summer Orientation session by the college and attendance is mandatory. Your student will be assigned either July 17, 18, or 19, and assignments will be sent via email during the week of May 28.
Throughout the one-day program, parents and guests will meet faculty, staff, administrators and learn about on-campus resources and off-campus partners.
Sessions are for parents and guests only and cover topics such as:
Student responsibilities regarding billing, housing, deadlines, and requirements
Safety and wellness (personal and campus-wide)
Student academic success support services
Co-curricular engagement opportunities and unique campus offerings
- Academic sessions with faculty and staff

The fee is $45 per person, which covers the cost of all meals, materials, giveaways, session rentals, parking, and program costs. Payments will be accepted by credit card or exact cash.
