New Student Orientation

Parent & Family Orientation - Fall 2015 Schedule of Events

Fall 2015 - New Student and Family Orientation: August 27th - 29th, 2015

In our work to ensure the success of first time students at Fort Lewis College, we make partnering with parents and family members one of our top priorities. With this in mind, we have created an informative, sometimes surprising, and always beneficial series of programs designed for the families and guests of our new students.

While your students are off in their small groups (30 or less), you will be grouped with other family members. Programming runs the gamut from faculty panels, to presentations regarding finances, academic advising and career planning, to sessions with seasoned staff members regarding how to best team with the College in support of your student's success.

Here's the detailed schedule of Orientation programs. Please mark your calendars!
