Our virtual receptions will include general sessions, as well as a session for families of international students and a session for families of students of color. Please feel free to register for the reception that best fits your interest. The in-person events will be held in:

  • Boston
  • Chicago
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Fairfield, Connecticut
  • Los Angeles
  • Medina, Washington
  • New York City
  • Pittsburgh

The full details regarding reception locations will be shared with registered guests via email one week prior to each event. Students are encouraged to attend in-person events with their families, but please note the virtual sessions are intended just for parents and guardians. (The First Year Experience Office will also host virtual sessions for students, please ask your student to watch their email for information soon.)
