We are thrilled that your students have chosen Hendrix for their college experience. Hendrix is a special place
focusing on experiential learning and student involvement. Our New Student Orientation program is designed
to help your student connect with other students, learn about our
campus culture, discover services that are available and get comfortable with
the campus before classes begin. The week culminates with a three-day
orientation trip which helps students connect with each other and is a
tradition unique to Hendrix.
We also know that this is an
important transitional time for parents as they adjust to a new role with their child. For this reason, we offer a session for family members to learn more to help
your student become an engaged member of the Hendrix community. During this time we will provide
additional information about academic programs, Odyssey, student services, and
the transition to college. We want to arm you with information so you can help
refer your student to the appropriate campus resources. We hope that you will consider staying for this program in the afternoon of move-in day.
As parents, you are critical
partners with us in the success of your student. While it’s up to your student
to do the work, we know that they need your support and sometimes your
encouragement to pursue campus opportunities. Our Parent Engagement office will help
keep you apprised of important campus information, services and special
We look forward to seeing you on
August 20, 2019!
