Parent Orientation

Parent Orientation

Parent orientation sessions for the summer sessions and fall semester are to be announced.

As a parent of a new student, we understand you may be wondering what life will be like for students on our campus this school year, particularly in light of coronavirus concerns.

Parent orientation will include the following topics:

Student Development
Find out about life in the residence halls, Student Support Services, student activities, and the enrichment program, which offers worships, convocations, music performances, and cultural programing. The university's Drug and Alcohol Policy and Title IX also will be discussed.

Health and Safety
Learn about the university’s commitment to keeping students healthy and safe. Whether your student isn’t feeling well or needs help jump-starting a dead car battery, caring staff are always ready to help.

Gain more information on financial planning, payment plans, and meal plans along with student employment options.

Campus Ministries
Learn about spiritual support resources and spiritual life on campus.

Please contact us with questions.
