Welcome Families & Guests!
Marywood's Orientation program is not just for your student. We understand that many of you are also going through a transition as you send 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 intend 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.
When your incoming student registers themselves for the 2020 New Student Orientation program, they will have the option to specify the number of guests that will be attending with them. Children ages 4-12 are welcome to attend as well - we have a Super Siblings program specifically for 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 the schedule so you know what to expect!
