New Student Orientation

Family and Guests: Schedule of Events - Spring

students and parents are orientation

Spring 2017 New Student and Family Orientation will be January 7th, 2017

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 Saturday, January 7th. We are happy to welcome all family members who would like to attend. There is no cost of attending the 2017 Spring Family Orientation Program.
