Parent and Family Orientation
Families decide to leave a variety of times during Parent and Family Orientation. Our programming will end around Tuesday, September 13, 2016, at 5 p.m. Many families will choose to utilize the programing we offer and depart sometime after 5 p.m. on Tuesday. Families may also choose to head out on Monday evening following move-in or on Tuesday at the completion of March Through the Arch. This is a good conversation to have with your student as you both prepare for this transition.
Most students will unite with family members the morning of move-in day.
The student and parent schedules are concurent; there are no joint sessions that occur. Though parents attend March Through the Arch, students are with their Peer Adviser groups while the parents stand to the sides to cheer on the new students.
If families are not driving or flying out their items, they will decide to ship items to campus in advance. Please visit the Undergraduate Housing FAQ section for more information on shipping items to campus.
