Parents Calendar 

The Office of Parents Programs produces the Parents Calendar each year and distributes it to all parents of incoming first-year and transfer students during summer orientation. In addition, this useful tool for parents is available throughout the year in the Russell House and during Parents Weekend, Move-in Day, and many student recruitment events throughout the year. In addition, we’re glad to mail you one. Just send us an email and include your mailing address. Please note that parents of incoming freshmen and transfer students will receive a copy at orientation this summer.
