Parent & Family Orientation

Welcome to the westminster college family!

New Student Orientation is a family-orientated event and we hope that you will join us for a variety of activities for parents and incoming students. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to easing your family’s transition to Westminster College. 

We are excited that you are joining your son/daughter during this amazing beginning of their life. During the Fall orientation we provide a dedicated parent program. This program spans one day and includes a number of important workshops and sessions that assist you in relieving some of the nerves that come with leaving your child for the first time.

Should you have any questions during or after the transition to Westminster College, please do not hesitate to contact the Dean of Students Office at 801.832.2230.

We look forward to meeting you at New Student Orientation!
