Welcome Family Members of New Students!
About Family Orientation:
A university education is a family experience and your partnership with the URI community begins at Orientation. We strongly encourage you to come to campus with your student and participate in our renowned family orientation program. This program is designed specifically for you. You will meet faculty, staff, and students who are eager to welcome you and connect you with many resources on campus. Additionally, learn about your student's academic curriculum and classroom expectations, network with other families, and have all your questions answered.
Remember, orientation is a time of celebration and welcome. We look forward hosting you and supporting your entire family's transition. If you have any concerns or questions, do not hesitate to contact us. We are committed to doing whatever we can to make your URI experience the best it can be!
