Why Family Orientation?

When adjusting to university life, students must build a support system to help them succeed. What does a healthy support system look like? How much support is enough or too much? How can a family member support a student without intrusion? We'll give you insight to the answers to these questions, and give you a firsthand overview of what post-secondary is like for students in the present day. Our goals are to help you stimulate conversation with your student, increase your awareness of what KPU has to offer your student, and help you and your students understand the post-secondary environment.

The evening will include:

  • Optional campus tours
  • Registration workshops for students
  • Student Experience Panel
  • Faculty guest speakers
  • Services Fair/On-site experts
  • Snacks and light refreshments

This event is part of a suite of Orientation programs aimed at helping new students get the best start possible for their first semester. Family Orientation is designed for parents, guardians, and family members, but new students are not required to attend. New students will be expected to attend a separate (student-only) New Student Orientation event prior to the start of classes.

Unable to attend?

There are plenty of resources for parents and families of new students on our New Student Supporter page.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us anytime – we're happy to help! orientation@kpu.ca
