New Student & Family Programs offers family orientation programming during all transfer and freshmen student orientations sessions. The family program is run concurrently with, but seperate from, the student schedule. During various presentations and programs, family members will learn more about all areas of their student's college experience.
Spending this time with us provides family members with a great opportunity to ask questions and truly understand Coastal Carolina University and their student’s college transition. Our family member programming is designed to be very informative, and we encourage all attendees to be present for the planned presentations and orientation events. Family members will receive a detailed schedule upon arrival.
