Parent & Family Orientation

Parent & Family Programs hosts In-Person Parent & Family Orientation (PFO) sessions between May and August.  These one-day workshops, which may coincide with your student's new student orientation, introduce our community, campus services/resources, university policies, and strategies for supporting your student's continued success. You'll also meet other parents and families who are new to the Beach Family.

Virtual PFO Fireside Chats are designed to complement your student’s SOAR Experience by providing topic-specific sessions that highlight campus resources, university policies & practices, as well as a forum for participants to ask their individual questions.  Past topics included University Housing, BeachScholarships, Health & Wellness, and Financial Literacy.  These Chats are hosted on Zoom and Facebook Live, and recordings are posted to our YouTube Channel.
