Below is the schedule for the parent portion of Summer 2014 New Student Orientation.

Please note: The orientation program has a conference style format. This relaxed setting allows you not only to get specific and accurate information about campus services and resources, it also gives you the chance to meet other parents who are experiencing similar transitions within their families. The program also provides you with contacts, real people at the college, who can help if you have a question to ask, a concern to share, or maybe a compliment to make.
