Family Orientation

Front of Wentworth Hall

Family members are encouraged to participate in orientation programs throughout the month of June. We will offer opportunities to connect with various faculty and staff through virtual and in-person programming. Throughout the summer, please refer to our Family Orientation information modules to learn about resources available to you and your student.
