Parent & Family Orientation 2024

Welcome to the Wildcat Family!

Even if you went to college, Northwestern is a unique place, and we feel strongly that parents and families need orientation too! Parent and Family Orientation (PFO) is designed to introduce you to the people and resources available to help support you and your student during their time at Northwestern. PFO is for the parents and families of both 2024 Transfer Students and the Class of 2028. Orientation leaders, called Family Ambassadors, will guide you through the program, answer your questions and give you some insight into student life on campus. 

A tentative program schedule will be available in July and registration for this free program will open in early August. We hope you'll plan to join us. Go ’Cats!
