Welcome Spring-Entry Parents!
At North Carolina State University, we view the relationship we have with our students' parents and families as a partnership - a partnership created to help students be successful. We also know that when parents are informed, students benefit. Therefore, we would like to invite you to a special program just for parents during New Student Orientation.
The Parents' Orientation program runs concurrently with New Student Orientation. There will be some sessions where both students and family members will be together, and other times when the groups will hear presentations specific to them.
The dates for this year's Spring-Entry Orientation are:
Friday, December 7, 2012 and Friday, January 4, 2013
Parents’ Orientation is more than just another campus tour. Even if you are already familiar with NC State’s campus, Parents' Orientation will help you get better acquainted with the academic programs and special services offered to your student and will address questions and concerns you may have. It will also offer insights into the adjustments your new college student and you will face during the next few years. Plus, you will have the opportunity to taste student life by eating in the dining hall and touring campus. The sample schedule provided describes the valuable information that will be presented. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to meet with many staff and current students.
We hope you will be able to join us for this important program. We are eager for you to feel at home at NC State University!
