New Student Orientation 2020

Mandatory Parent Orientation Modules

Your student(s) has made the journey from high school to college. In the days ahead, students will develop new academic strategies as well as become acclimated to the independence fostered in college life. The Office of Freshman Studies is available to assist your student. We will offer guidance and support through a number of structured activities this transitional year. We recognize that having a college student is a transition for parents as well. With this in mind, we have developed the following three modules to assist you with your transition.

Please note: All modules will be available until Monday, August 3, 2020.
