This week for new families
Greetings Eagle Families,
Last week, you should have recieved our Family Update newsletter. We send the Update regularly (monthly during the summer, alternate weeks during the fall and spring semesters) to share upcoming dates, deadlines and reminders along with a selection of brief articles to our AU Changemakers in action. You can find all of our Updates on our website for families.
At this point, your student should have their fall housing assignment, roommate and move-in slot. They've probably also just finished registering for fall classes. So now, we can really dive into New Eagle Essentials - our online orientation. If you didn't get to join us for our first session in June, we hope you will join us for this introduction to AU. Your student can register through Engage. Families and friends can register for one of the two remaining sessions as listed below:
New Eagle Essentials is offered on Zoom. Families can use this form to register for one of these two remaining times:
Note: If possible, we encourage students and families to attend using separate devices so that you can attend breakout sessions separately.
Wednesday, July 13 from noon – 3 p.m. ET
Saturday, July 23 from 9 a.m. – noon ET
NEW! Meet with our Orientation Leaders for a Family Zoom Room. Got questions about your student's journey? Stop by to talk with Orientation Leaders about academics, clubs and life as an Eagle.
We are also offering a second live session of our Parent and Family Transitions webinar with Fanta Aw, Vice President for Undergraduate Enrollment, Campus Life and Inclusive Excellence. We'll have a heart-to-heart as we talk through what you can expect as your Eagle adjusts to campus life this fall.
Our orientation sessions are recorded and will be available shortly on our Orientation 2022 playlist on YouTube. As always, feel free to reach out to us at [email protected] with any question, any time.
Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle!
