The following pages contain the schedule of presentations for both days of the Parent and Family Orientation. While review- University Rochester ing the schedule, you may notice that several sessions are offered at the same time. Sessions occurring simultaneously will be listed in the same programming block. Many sessions are offered twice daily, so please take a moment to plan of your own schedule according to your interests. If you are unable to attend a session due to room capacity, volunteers (all wearing their famous yellow t-shirts) will be available to direct you to other presentations. You might also notice that there are two lunch sessions. We ask that you please adhere to the time assigned to you to help alleviate a rush for dining services. Refer to the campus map as well as the dining hours chart in this program to select a dining location that best suits you. All dining options take cash and credit cards. At the conclusion of Orientation, you will be emailed a link to a survey; we would appreciate your feedback to help make this program better for years to come (Meliora!). Thank you for supporting your student; we are happy to have you here with us!
