The parent/guest session is part of the overall ORIENTATION experience. The components of the parent's session are very similar to the student's, with sessions on academic preparedness & support, campus recreation & wellness, and college adjustments. Although most components of the parents program are separate from students, there is time to connect with your student and to take care of business while on campus. The parent/guest program costs $60 for the first guest and $40 for each additional guest. The costs cover name tags and meals including a sit down dinner with faculty and administrators where you can ask individualized questions regarding your student's transition. Parents can stay overnight on campus for an additional fee. Parent/Guests can sign up for ORIENTATION within their student's reservation account located on the Sign-Up page. The program dates, along with other important dates, can be found on the Program Dates page.
"For a first-time parent of a college student we feel that the choice to come to the University of Nevada, Reno was the right choice. We are honestly not anxious about our student moving on." - Derick, parent
The parent portion of Orientation has the overall goal of providing an increased awareness of the services and tools available on campus to assist in you and your student's successful collegiate experience.
