Family Connection Orientation
New Student Orientation's Family Connection Program
At UNM we feel it is just as important for you to get acquainted with the university as it is for your new student. Making a smooth transition is the key to success. That’s why we offer the Family Connection orientation program specifically for parents and families of new students. While your student is learning the ropes; you can sit through your own orientation to ensure you are getting your questions answered.
The Family Connection Program is for parents and family members of freshmen students attending Lobo Orientation. It is a day and half program composed of a wide variety of presentations on everything from finances to academics. Included are relationship workshops and student panel discussions all geared to help our parents and families get acclimated to UNM.
There is a $40.00 fee for each family member who participates in this two day program and we also feature a "Tag-Team" option that enables to parents to attend for the price of one! This program received a 99% recommendation rating from last year's attendees.
