Family and Guests

Members of the student’s family and support network are welcome to attend Grand Orientation and orientation program at our NSU regional campuses.  Grand Orientation has a parent orientation designed especially for parent and guests that will help them become more confident in their student’s ability to successfully transition to NSU and begin to adjust to seeing their family member as a college student.

Grand Orientation is free to attend for family and guests, however, pre-registration by your student is required and there is a maximum of two attendees per student.
