A student and parents on campus

Quinnipiac understands that sending a student to college is a family experience. The New Student Orientation Program provides the opportunity for parents and family members to become more familiar with the University through a program targeted specifically at the needs of family members.

While your student is undergoing his or her personal Orientation session, join us for a one-day program where you will learn about the various resources that are available to families, meet with administrators, take campus tours, and have opportunities to ask questions related to academics, co-curricular involvement, finances, life on campus, and much more.

You and your family will even be able to attend a student panel to discuss questions or concerns with current Quinnipiac students. Attendance is highly encouraged and recommended.
