New Student Parent & Family Information

Opening Day 2007 Welcome to Belmont University! Our award-winning Parent Orientation program is designed to provide you with valuable information and resources, as well as a window into the opportunities awaiting your student. Summer Orientation is the primary opportunity for you to access institutional resources through a variety of informational sessions, academic forums, and social interactions.


Summer Orientation

Summer Orientation for parents runs concurrent with your student's orientation sessions. Parents have the opportunity to attend information sessions hosted by Residence Life, Student Financial Services, and numerous other campus offices. Further, parents will connect with other first-year parents, faculty, and key administrators through a variety of social and academic programs.
