Orientation for Families

Orientation for Families

Saturday, Aug. 31, 2024

Welcome to the Salve Regina family! We view our relationship with families as a partnership through which we seek to create the optimal support system for all students.

Our one-day orientation for families will provide the information and resources you need to support your student during their critical first year. Offered by the Office of Student Engagement in collaboration with a variety of campus partners, the day will include informative sessions designed to welcome you to Salve Regina, answer your questions and prepare you and your student for the college experience.

Our orientation program for families is not mandatory, but you are strongly encouraged to participate.

You will meet other family members from the Class of 2028, staff from various campus offices and other members of the Salve Regina community.

During our orientation for families, you can attend information sessions and a resources fair, help your student move in to their residence hall, and attend a family social along with our traditional welcome and blessing ceremony.

Students are billed a $300 fee for New Seahawk Orientation. As part of this fee, students may bring up to two family members to participate in family orientation.

We are unable to provide on-campus accommodations for families. If you are traveling from a distance or wish to explore the Newport area before or after Aug. 31, our hotel partners provide accommodations at reasonable rates.
