The Parent Orientation Program, a two-day experience that runs simultaneously with Summer Freshman Orientation, is designed to familiarize parents and guardians with the University, policies, procedures, and adjustments new students face during the college experience. The program includes presentations and discussions on a wide range of topics, such as student behavioral expectations, first-year transitions, student engagement, residential living and learning, campus services, and academics.  Parents and guardians will have the opportunity to meet with faculty, students, and administrators; attend the Division of Student Life's “RU Ready To Step Up?” signature campaign; dine in the Marketplace; and explore Glassboro.  

This is a perfect venue for finding answers to all of your questions about being the parent of a Rowan University freshman. For more information, contact the Office of Student Transition and Leadership Programs at 856-256-4041 or visit
