Spring 2015 Detailed Schedule

Partnering with family members is a top priority at Fort Lewis College.  This partnership helps to ensure the success of our first year students.  With this in mind, we have created an informative, sometimes surprising, series of programs for you. While your students are off in their small groups (30 or less), you will be grouped with other family members. At times, you will join your student for programming and at other times students and family members have separate programming.  All sessions are designed to assist you in supporting your student's "march toward graduation."

We do not offer pre-registration for Spring Orientation but are happy to welcome all family members who would like to attend
The cost for Spring Family Orientation is $20 per person.. This fee covers 3 meals and a complete package of written materials.
