Parent & Family Program - Spring 2014


The New Student Orientation, Parent & Family program is designed to provide family members of incoming students with information about the University of Hawai´i at Mānoa campus, its resources and policies. The NSO staff believes that parents are critical to a student's success at UHM, providing support and encouragement to their college students during this important transition into University of Hawai´i at Mānoa.

At NSO, participating parents and families will be able to:

  • Talk to representatives from academic and campus life programs as well as those representing student support services
  • Interact with current UHM students who will also share their perspectives on campus life, programs, and opportunities available to students
  • Discuss important issues about the next phase of the relationship they have with their student and look at ways to support each other during their first-year of college or transition to a new institution
  • Visit the Resource Fair
  • Tour the Mānoa Campus
  • Receive breakfast and lunch
  • Meet parents of other incoming freshmen or transfer students
