Parents & Family Orientation Events

If you had the opportunity to attend any parent/family sessions during SOAR, please note that the content of the Orientation sessions on August 2nd will be different, so we hope to see you there! Parents/family will have the opportunity to learn about the campus community, hear from parents of other Centenary students, and ask questions of staff and students.

Freshman Family Weekend

Freshman Family Weekend on August 23rd will give you the opportunity to learn more about the campus and local communities and engage with your student and learn about what they did during the Centenary in Paris initiative. We encourage you to stay for the evening to spend time with your student on Sunday, as this is a free day in their programming schedule.
