Parent & Family Orientation

Parent and Family Orientation 2014: June 14, June 20, July 18, or July 19

Family members of incoming Millersville University students are invited to attend a one-day Parent & Family Orientation Program.  The goal of family orientation is to provide you with tools that will prepare you to support your student as well as introduce you to the Millersville campus, its programs and services.  This will be accomplished through a variety of interactive presentations and open discussions.  

Registration and Frequently Asked Questions:

  • Registration will be available in the coming weeks.
  • Families must register ahead of time and due to space limitations, planning, materials, etc. we are unable to accommodate walk-ins.
  • Registration for each Parent & Family Orientation session will close one week prior to the Orientation date or when that date reaches capacity.
  • Students will attend their own Orientation program beginning on August 21st, 2014.  The focus of this program is not for students and they should not plan on attending the Parent & Family Orientation sessions.  
  • Younger siblings will be invited to campus in the fall during our Parent & Family Weekend programming.  We ask that only adult family members attend this Orientation program.
  • If you have any questions, please contact the Center for Student Involvement & Leadership at (717) 872-3506 or orientation@millersville.edu.
