First-Year Parents' Orientation

Welcome First-Year Parents!

The Office of New Student Programs welcomes you to NC State University, a community of achievers, rich in tradition and academic excellence. To assist you and your family as new members of this community, we invite you to attend a Parents' Orientation session. These sessions are designed specifically for parents and families of first-year students.

The schedule describes the valuable information that will be presented. This program will help you:

  • get better acquainted with the academic programs and campus services offered to your student; 
  • gain insights into the potential adjustments your new college student and your family will face; and 
  • meet with many staff and current students.
