Families and Guests

We are excited to announce the dates for our 2020 Family & Guest Orientation programs. We WILL have programs on:

August 10, 12, 13, 14 & 15

Check out University Housing for additional details regarding which students groups are able to move in each day.

This program will be optional for family members and guests and FREE to attend. However, we do ask that each family member or guest registers for the program in advance. You can find it as an option as your student selects their Virtual Advising Day and completes the New V.O.L. Experience registration process.

Family members and guests WILL be able to move in with their students AND attend the Family & Guest Orientation program. It will be one day and will not include an overnight component.

We are still working on the official schedule and will release it later this summer.

NOTE: If you paid a fee for the Family & Guest Orientation already, you WILL receive a refund. Please be patient with us as we work through processing each one.
