New Student Orientation

The transition to college is one of the biggest steps your student will take in their life. However, your student is not the only person making a transition. While they are learning how to live on their own and making their own decisions, you too are confronted with a new set of circumstances.

Family Orientation has been created to make this transition as stress-free as possible.
