Orientation isn’t just for students—parents and family members play a crucial role in the success of college students. We invite you to participate in Parent and Family IntroDUCKtion, a program designed to help you become familiar with resources for families, and guide you through your student’s orientation and transition process.

While you are a critical partner in your student’s success at the UO, we are going to focus our in-person programs in the summer on providing new Ducks an exceptional experience.

At this time, we are preparing a rich schedule of remote programs we will offer this summer for parents and family members to learn more about:

  • Academics at the UO
  • First-Year Programs
  • Parent and Family Programs
  • Your changing role in your student’s education
  • Campus safety
  • Substance abuse prevention and education
  • Sexual violence prevention and education
  • Money matters,
  • University housing and dining
  • Health services and understanding insurance options
  • Counseling services
  • Next steps for fall term
  • Week of Welcome
  • Move-in
  • So much more

Please check back here for video sessions and our schedule of live Ask the Experts programs we will offer this summer.

We are working hard on providing you an exciting in-person opportunity in September!
