                       Parents and Families,

                       Welcome to the University of Rochester family! Just like your student, you too
                       have joined a great community. The following pages contain the schedule of
                       presentations for both days of the Parent and Family Orientation. While review-

                       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!
