Family Members

Virtual family orientation

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, FLC has decided to implement a virtual Orientation experience by Zoom for family members. Our aim is to provide you with strong connections to campus staff, faculty, and students and answer questions you may have as your student prepares to arrive on campus. Please join us for all or some of Orientation to engage with FLC colleagues from the Office of Student Affairs, Health Center, Counseling Center, Police Department, Orientation, Career Services, Financial Aid, Billing, and more!

Plus, we’ll have a student panel so you can hear from the real experts! This virtual program will be recorded and made available on our Orientation page for anyone who is unable to attend or wishes to review the content.
