We are excited to have you and your student as a part of the Asbury community! We know the transition to college is a significant one for the whole family, and we want to help make it as smooth and enjoyable as possible. Whether your son or daughter just graduated from high school or is transferring from another institution, we look forward to your student beginning a new chapter at Asbury University.
Parent Orientation - Aug. 9-10, 2016
An optional but informative orientation program which includes relevant programming and helpful information for you is available for parents of first-time students and transfers with 29 or fewer Asbury-approved credit hours. Once you arrive on campus Tuesday and register your student for Welcome Week, you will have time to help your son or daughter move in and get settled in the residence hall. That evening we kick off the programming with a Faculty Reception for you to meet some of your student's professors, followed by the President's Convocation.
The following day was crafted with you in mind--we want to provide an opportunity for you to meet staff from a wide variety of offices ranging from Finanical Aid and the Registrar's Office to Student Development and Business Affairs. New this year is a special closing service for students and parents, which you will not want to miss! Your time on campus will conclude by 5 p.m. Wednesday, while Welcome Week activities continue for your student. Check out the tentative Parent Orientation schedule for additional information.
Does your student have middle-school or high-school age siblings? Register them for College Connection, a free program for middle-school and high-school age siblings offered during designated sessions of Parent Orientation. College Connection is available Wednesday from 9:15 - 11:45 a.m. and 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. To register, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, August 5th.
We look forward to having you here and are privileged to be a part of your son or daughter's life. God bless!
