Parents and Guardians

Orientation is an important transition for both students and their families, and we have thoughtfully designed a schedule to provide the most effective way to ease your arrival and connection to campus. 

To help with the transition, we will have a "kick-off" dinner for parents, families and guardians the first night of Spring Orientation (Jan. 11). The dinner will provide an oppurtunity to ask important questions to campus faculty and staff.  This dinner will begin at 6PM and will take place in the Lane Student Center. 


Prior to your arrival, we encourage you to take the following steps:
