Family Orientation 2015

The Daemen College Community prides itself in helping our first-year students become successful academically, emotionally, personally, and socially. Daemen College is a place for students to make new friends, develop new skills, and learn about themselves and the world. Parents/guardians need to be aware that their sons and daughters are making many new transitions at this time in their life.

To help with this transition we would like to invite all parents/guardians of incoming freshmen to our Family Orientation. The program coincides with the two freshmen orientation sessions and will be held Monday, July 13 and Thursday, July 16.

The information sessions are open to all families* and we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the services Daemen offers, where to go when you have questions, and how to address concerns your child may have during their first year.

**Please note that although Family Orientation is open to all members of the family, the program is geared towards adults. Younger siblings are welcome to attend the program, but child-specific activities and child care are not provided.
