Summer Orientation Programs in July are helpful in assisting new students and families with the adjustment to college. The program features an academic overview presentation, break-out sessions for new students and parents, campus and neighborhood tours, and Q&A sessions with current students and administrators. There are specific workshops directed to parents to help answer questions about their student's transition to college. It is also a great opportunity for new students to tour the campus and get to know students before the school year.
