ROAR - Information for Families & Guests


Congratulations! Your student has chosen to join a wonderful family here at Queens University of Charlotte, and we are excited about the many opportunities that await all of our new students! Family/Guest orientation is part of our summer ROAR program and allows you to meet faculty, administrators, and staff who will be working with your student during their college career. 

One question we always get is should parents attend ROAR? The short answer is yes! We know schedules can be busy, but we highly encourage a parent or family member to attend ROAR with their student. By attending ROAR, the student and their parent and guest will be more informed about the student experience, campus resources, and next steps for finalizing their enrollment at Queens. As a parent or family member, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about how to support and be a partner in your student's success at Queens.

Some additional benefits of attending ROAR as a parent/family member include: 

  • Getting to know key campus contacts and administrators, as well as other parents.
  • Receiving information you can utilize for future conversations with your student.
  • Becoming familiar with campus and the Charlotte community where your student will be spending the next few years.

ROAR Guest Fees 

One guest is invited to ROAR without additional fees. If you have additional guests, a $20 fee will be collected during ROAR.
