Parent Schedule

The first day of Hendrix Orientation is designed to help parents and family members adjust to the "college transition" as well as the students. We encourage you to attend our optional Parent Orientation sessions. You'll have the opportunity to participate on Aug. 20 until about 5:30 PM. After this time your students will begin the Orientation experience with their fellow students and Orientation team leaders. 

After our wonderfully friendly orientation staff helps your student move into his or her room on Aug. 20, you'll enjoy several chances to interact with other parents and the Hendrix staff. We'll provide valuable information to help you and your family transition to life while your student is away at college!
