Winter Parent & Family Orientation

Parent and Family Orientation is an optional one day program geared towards meeting the needs of our incoming students’ families. We strive to not only answer questions and provide guidance but to connect family members with key resources in our Rutgers community.

Presentation on finances, health and wellness and safety are coupled with sessions featuring current students. These sessions will familiarize you with university resources and help provide guidance on what your students will go through during their time as a Rutgers student.

Lastly, we will provide tips that we believe will help you be a partner alongside Rutgers in supporting your students’ academic and social success.
