Parent Orientation

Parents of SPRING New Students

Parents of incoming SPRING new students may participate in the orientation program offered on Friday, January 9, with your student. Whenever appropriate, breakout sessions will be offered to provide parents with specific information about Queens; however, for our spring orientation program, parents will be with their student for most sessions.   

 

Parents of FALL New Students

Parents of incoming freshmen may participate in the two-day, overnight Summer Orientation session with their students on either June 15-16, 2015 (Session 1-Will open in March 2015) or June 22-23 (Session 2 - Will open in March 2015). Parents of incoming transfer students may participate in a one-day Orientation Session on August 3, 2015 (Session 3 - Will open in June 2015). If unable to attend in the summer, students can participate in a mini Orientation on Thursday, August 27, 2015 before all other students move in. The parent orientation sessions will feature important information for parents about student financial services, student safety, health and wellness, and much more.

Parent Orientation Sessions 1 and 2

Parents Orientation Session 3 and Session 4. (Parents will participate along with their student and do not have a separate program.)

  • ROAR Session 3 Schedule - 2015 Schedules will be available in June
  • ROAR Session 4 Schedule - 2015 Schedules will be available in June

Parents must register to attend an orientation session. Registration for the Orientation process is comprehensive; therefore students and parents will be registered together under one registration. To register for the parent orientation sessions, please ensure that your student has listed you on their New Student Orientation registration. There is no additional cost to attend the parent orientation program.

During the June Orientation programs and fall move in, on campus housing will be provided for students. Students will be paired with other incoming students to get the true experience of sharing space and getting to know their new peers. Parents are encouraged to stay at one of our participating hotel sponsors here in Charlotte. These hotels have set up special pricing for Queens' guests. All hotels listed are within 5 miles of campus.

Fall Arrival for Incoming New Students

All new students who have attended a summer orientation program will move-in on Friday, August 28, 2015. Parents are encouraged to attend the New Student Welcome and Sed Ministrare ceremonies on Friday, August 28, 2015 after move-in. Be sure to make reservations at one of our Host Hotels for fall accommodations.
