As family members, you are invited to participate in our one-day Family Orientation on the first day of your student's Orientation program. Although student and family programs are held on the same dates, they are conducted as separate sessions. You will attend a number of informational sessions, meet faculty, staff and current students, and learn about Emmanuel College. Topics such as the transition to college, academic success, student health and safety, living on campus or commuting, and tuition bill and payment options will be covered. The program begins at 9:30 a.m. and concludes at 5:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided as part of the program.
"Family Orientation is our chance to meet with parents and family members directly and highlight all the great programs available to their students. It's our way of inviting them into the Emmanuel family."
- Mary Beth Thomas, Assistant Dean for Community Standards and Family Programs
There are plenty of opportunities for you to keep in touch with all the happenings on campus. The Parent and Family Edition of Emmanuel E-News offers news updates, upcoming events and helpful links for our parents and families. In addition, you can connect with Emmanuel through social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Foursquare! We encourage parents to visit our Parents and Families web page and provide contact information, particularly e-mail addresses. E-mail is the fastest way for members of our administration and staff to contact you with news and updates.
