Fall 2017 International Parent Orientation RSVP



Each term, International Affairs conducts a mandatory, comprehensive orientation for incoming international and exchange students and their guests. Campus Life welcomes their families and guests to attend a parent/family orientation. During this orientation, you will have the opportunity to learn about SAIC resources, meet SAIC faculty and staff, and get to know other incoming students and their families.

Support from families and friends is beneficial for many SAIC students, so we would like to take this opportunity to meet you and provide information and resources to assist you in supporting your student.

International Parent Orientation includes:

  • One day of programs designed to highlight the history and future of SAIC and to give you a true sense of the community your student will be joining. Sessions are specifically designed for parents and guests and will be presented by a variety of SAIC senior-level administrators

  • A catered continental breakfast and lunch

  • Meet with staff members from a variety of offices and get all of your last-minute questions answered

  • The opportunity to connect with other parents and students in formal and informal settings and more!

Parents, families, and guests are also invited to join their SAIC student(s) during New Student Orientation on Sunday, August 27, 2017. Please visit the SAIC Orientation website to register for this event. Parent and Guest Orientation is free to attend.
