Important Orientation Information for Families
While your student is attending orientation during Day One, we’ve planned a schedule of activities just for you. You will get tips to help on how students transition to university life, finance their education, information about their academic programs, and meet the staff at the University who will be working with your students over the next few years.
On Day Two, you have the option of visiting staff in some of the University’s key departments, including Financial Aid, Student Life, Dining Services, and Student Accounts, to name a few. The staff will be happy to answer any questions you or your students may have. In addition, there will be a Parents Panel at 1pm and a President's reception at 2:15pm. There you will have the opportunity to meet and interact with numerous faculty and staff members.
Students will be housed on campus for the overnight program. If you will be attending with your student, there are plenty of places to stay close by. Look below for a list, or visit www.campusphilly.org or www.visitphilly.com. Look for a hotel near Center City, Rittenhouse Square, or University City, or see below.
