    • There will be an opportunity at the end of the day for families to tour the campus. There will also be other options the families can choose from like visitng different departments or visiting the campus bookstore!

  1. i registered back in April for the June 11th family orientation, but haven’t received any info as far as where to check-in, check-in time, Etc.
