Parent and Family Programs

Lots of things change.  But your involvement in your child's life doesn't have to be one of them.

ORIENTATION

Orientation and Welcome Weekend is where the transition and community building begins for your student and you as a parent/family member!  There is so much to learn about Flyer Life in these programs that we hope you can join us for one or more of the experiences.

Resources to help you navigate as a parent/family member of an undergraduate UD student can be found here.

Family Weekend

Family weekend is a great time to connect with your student and celebrate their adjustment to the Fall semester!

Fall 2020: COVID-19 Updates

The University has announced a number of measures to protect the health and safety of our community from the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19). We continue to be committed to protecting the health and safety of our campus, our community and beyond. 

The 2020 Camp Blue program has been cancelled to mitigate safety concerns in lieu of COVID-19. Once the fall arrival plan has been finalized and approved by the university and Public Health officials, details and other pertinent information regarding move-in and welcome weekend programming will be communicated to students and parents.

The Early Drop-off program will not be offered for Fall 2020 because students will be arriving in phases during early August. Details regarding Fall Move-in will be released once information has been finalized by the Office of Housing and Residence Life. In the meantime, please visit the Path Forward website for the most up-to-date information regarding fall opening.

Fall move-in will be a phased process beginning in early August. Details about and instructions for the process will be released once information has been finalized by the Office of Housing and Residence Life. In the meantime, please visit the Path Forward website for the most up-to-date information regarding fall opening.

Welcome Weekend programming will be provided virtually, live-streamed, and/or through small group gatherings. No large gatherings will be permitted. Participation for new students will be required and the schedule of events will be shared directly with students in early August. Parents and family members will not stay for programming after move-in, but are invited to join welcome events virtually from home. Event details and registration instructions for Parent/Family members will be shared on our webpage in mid-August.
