Parent Orientation Schedule
Tuesday, August 19, 2014

Although New Student Orientation is designed to prepare students for their upcoming years at Coe, many of Tuesday's activities are scheduled for parents. We hope these events will answer your questions and familiarize you with the Coe College campus and resources available. These events also provide you with the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, administrators and other students who will be joining your son or daughter in their academic endeavors. We encourage you to attend as many of the events as possible.
