Family Orientation

We are pleased to welcome you to the George Mason University Family. The New Student and Family Programs staff is excited to invite you to attend Orientation with your new student! The Orientation program is designed to assist students in a manageable acclimation and easy transition to the university community, while also attending to the needs of parents and family members during their transition with their students. Families have a vested interest in their student’s success and their transition is important to us.

During Orientation, a family program is conducted concurrently with the student program. These programs offer family members a wide range of perspectives on life at Mason and serve as a good foundation to building a relationship with the University.

Please note there is no family program provided for Transfer Evening Orientation or International Orientation.
