Welcome First-Year Parents!
The Office of New Student Orientation welcomes you to NC State University, a community of achievers rich in tradition and academic excellence. To assist you and your family as new members of this community, we invite you to attend a Parents' Orientation Session. These sessions are designed specifically for parents and families of first-year students.
At NC State, 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 First-Year Orientation that runs concurrently with your student's program.
The sample schedule describes the valuable information that will be presented. This program will help you get better acquainted with the academic programs and campus services offered to your student. It will also offer insights into the adjustments your new college student and you will face during the next few years. 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!
