Welcome to Parent & Family Orientation!

In the interest of campus safety, all parent/family orientation programming will happen online on Friday, September 11. You can find the schedule and corresponding Zoom links by clicking the bar below.

Welcome Week Schedule for Parents & Families

For move-in day, a parent or family member can expect to be able to assist their student as they move into their room at their assigned time. You are then welcome to spend some time on Tuesday with your Lawrentian outside of their residence halls before you say your good-byes and head home. You may explore campus or Appleton in a socially-distanced, COVID-conscious manner. Please be aware that campus buildings and facilities will not be open/accessible, so your explorations will need to be outside.
Boxed grab-and-go lunches and dinners will be offered if you need a meal for your return trip.
