At Claflin University, we realize that families are in transition when students leave home for college. Orientation to campus life is important to help parents, guardians, or other guests understand and support their student.
We invite parents and family members to attend the Parent Orientation Sessions. This session will prepare parents for the adjustments to college life and the transtition your student will experience at Claflin University. This event can include parents, aunts, uncles, godparents, guardians, siblings, or grandparents. Your support of the student’s education is critical to their success!
The orientation information sessions allow parents, guardians, and other adults to learn about how your student will spend the next four years. You will get a glimpse of campus life, how to support your student while they are pursuing their degree, and how you can stay involved. You will also have an opportunity to meet other parents, learn the basics of living on campus, and the many valuable resources available to support student success.
Move in weekend is also an excellent opportunity for parents to be introduced to and register for the Panther Parent Association, an organization designed to support and promote the interests of parents of students currently enrolled at Claflin University. There is no cost for membership! Each member will receive quarterly newsletters and have the chance to work firsthand with other members and university staff to organize Parents Weekend as well as other activities.
