The Family and Guest Orientation Program is held separately, but on the same day as the student's Orientation. This program will allow parents, and spouses the opportunity to:

  • Discover what the college expects from students and what students can expect from the college.
  • Learn ways to offer support and encouragement to the students.
  • Share concerns and fears with other families and college personnel.
  • Find out what is available on campus and in the Rochester area.
  • Tour the campus.

This program is only offered during the First Time College Student Orientation Programs.

  • Have you bought your books?
  • Have you been eating in the Terrace?
