This is an opportunity for families to get any last minute questions answered and get a feel for what their student is going to experience during their career here at Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Check-in starts at 9 AM in front of the Student Center. Family orientation is expected to end around 4:30 PM. Information Sessions are subject to change. Final schedules will be available at check-in.
