New Student Orientation

Family and Guests: Schedule of Events - Spring

students and parents are orientation

Spring 2016 New Student and Family Orientation will be January 8-9, 2016

A detailed schedule of Spring 2016 Orientation Programs will be available in late November.

Partnering with family members to ensure the success of our students is a top priority at Fort Lewis College. With this in mind, we have created an informative, sometimes surprising, series of programs for you. You will join your student for certain sessions 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."

If you would like to attend our Family Orientation sessions, you may register in person in the Student Union Lobby on Friday, January 8 from 3:00 - 5:00 PM. We are happy to welcome all family members who would like to attend. The cost of attending the Spring Family Orientation programs is $20 per person which covers the cost of meals and printed materials.
