Parent Orientation Information

Welcome to the Marymount University community! We understand that this may be a new experience for you and members of your family and we are here to help. Parent and Family Orientation is a one- day event designed to provide important information and help families understand how best to assist and support students in their transition to Marymount.

Participants of Parent and Family Orientation will:

  1. Develop a meaningful connection with the campus community through better understanding the history, values, and mission of the university and identifying resources that are integral to a successful student transition.
  2. Identify campus information and resources that support student retention, engagement, and success.
  3. Develop a greater understanding of their role and relationship with their student, other Marymount parents, and the university.

2020 Parent Orientation Information

In order to remain responsive to our student needs during this everchanging time, Marymount’s 2020 New Student Orientation will take place online. Beginning May 18, deposited first-year and transfer students will receive information via their Marymount email regarding opportunities for engagement with their future peers.

We are inviting parents, families, and guests to participate in an online orientation of their own throughout the summer. Parent and Family Orientation will consist of online content provided on the Marymount website, and eight virtual informational sessions hosted in August via Zoom. The online orientation content is now available, as well as information on how to register and access the virtual sessions. Please email with any questions or concerns, or to speak with a representative from the Orientation team.

There will be no on-campus orientation events for parents and guests at this fall, as we anticipate extended social distancing guidelines to continue through the remainder of the year. We will continue to follow CDC recommendations and guidelines to assure the safety of our students, faculty, and staff.
