Selecting an Orientation Session
Which of the sessions should you choose?
1-day parent program sessions are geared toward parents and family members of O'ahu students since the residence halls do not open until the week before school starts. If you are a parent or family member of a neighbor island, continental U.S. or international student, attending one of the 1-day sessions may require you to make multiple travel arrangements. If you are able to do this, the NSO staff welcomes your participation if you are able join us for a 1-day session. If not, we encourage you to join us for Week of Welcome (WoW).
Week of Welcome, scheduled for 8/18 to 8/21, is our extended orientation program that still provides participants with essential information and an introduction to campus. In addition, a variety of workshops about the University and its surrounding environment are also included.
What if I'm not sure whether I can attend an orientation session? Can I just be a walk-in on the day of orientation?
Yes and No. We do not accept walk-ins for the 1-day sessions. We will accept walk-ins for parents and families who want to attend Week of Welcome (WoW) (August 18th - 21nd). More information regarding walk in registration for WoW will be available on the website in early summer.
