Pirate Adventure

Parent Orientation Schedule

The Orientation schedule for parents is designed to introduce you to many of the services and support systems in place for your student. You’ll receive answers to all of your questions – some of which you didn’t even know you had! Please note: the parent schedule is completely separate from the student schedule. Your student will experience his/her own Pirate Adventure. After you drop your student at the residence hall to check in, you will not see him/her again until the next day when his/her program ends.
