Staying on campus means that you will be staying in the designated Family Orientation Residence Hall while you are here for orientation. You will be sharing a bathroom during your stay with us. This is a wonderful opportunity to "relive" the days when you were in college or to get an idea as to what your student may experience this fall. Regardless of your reason for staying with us, the Family Staff is available to help in any way they can and will have activities available to make sure you have a good time. Family members attending alone may be assigned a roommate at check-in based upon the number attending that particular session.
