Welcome Families & Guests!
Marywood's Orientation program is not just for your student. We understand that many of you are going through a transition of sending your student to college. With this change comes many questions. Marywood offers a Family & Guest Orientation program that coincides with your incoming student's orientation program.
To plan for your arrival, ensure that when your student registers for Orientation, they note on the form that they intended to bring you as a guest! We will take care of the rest.
Take a look below at a brief schedule of topics that will be covered for family and guests. A detailed schedule with be distributed upon arrival and check-in at the university.
Opens March 23, 2019 (Same day as Admitted Student Open House!)
Registration for family members and guests will take place during the 'Student Registration' process. When your incoming student registers themselves for the 2019 New Student Orientation program, they will have the option to specify how many guests will be attending with them.
There is no cost associated with attending for family members and guests. We simply ask that during the registration process you purchase any meals you and other guests plan to eat on campus. (Meals of the incoming student are covered in their Matriculation Fee)
The Family & Guest Schedule runs concurrently to the new student schedule. Take a peek at last year's schedule so that you know what to expect!
