The New Families Orientation (NFO) program is designed for parents whose students are about to begin their first (freshman or transfer) year at Rice University. The program will acquaint parents with various aspects of the university’s academic, residential, and student life. Emphasis will be on the transitions and adjustments new college students and their parents typically experience. Parents will have an opportunity to visit with members of our faculty, administrative staff, student body, and current Rice parents. It is intended that, as a result of participating in the program, parents will have an enriched sense of sharing in their student’s college life.
Families will hear from David Leebron, President of Rice University, and our Dean of Undergraduates followed by informal information sessions to be held from 1:00 to 6:00 pm. Various departments from across campus will also be available for parents to ask questions and learn more about their services.
If you have any questions or concerns after reviewing our schedule please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or (713) 348-4373.
