Undergraduate Orientation

Parent and Family Welcome


You are an important member of the Brown community!
The Parent and Family Welcome is an opportunity for parents and family members of newly admitted students to engage with faculty and senior administrators, experience the excitement of the start of the academic year, and meet each other while their students begin orientation.

Student and Family Support

If circumstances or distance make it impossible for you to accompany your student to Brown, please don’t worry: our faculty, administrators and students are here to help them acclimate to Brown. Likewise, if you will be bringing your student to campus for a Pre-Orientation program earlier in the week and are unable to stay until Orientation begins, the staff of the various programs will work closely with your student to ensure a successful transition.

Much of the information presented to parents at this time is also available online. A full schedule of events and information sessions will also take place during Family Weekend, late October 2023. More information to follow.
