Miss Representation Film Screening and Discussion
Miss Representation is a 2011 American documentary film written, directed, and produced by Jennifer Siebel Newsom. It explores how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in influential positions by circulating limited and often disparaging portrayals of women. Free pizza!

Each June the University hosts an orientation program for the parents of incoming first year students.  The program takes place over eight days in late June.  Each day corresponds to a different group of academic majors.  You will be assigned a day based on your student's academic major.  The Parent Orientation day is the same as the student's orientation day.  While there is no cost for your student to attend orientation, there is a $35.00/person cost for parents and guests who attend Parent Orientation.

While both parent and student have orientation on the same day, the programs are completely separate until the end of the day dinner.  During the Parent Orientation you will gain knowledge on a variety of topics including academics, safety and security, student life, and of course the laptop program (how to purchase, how they are used in class, etc.).  Although the day is long, our goal is to answer all of your questions before you leave.  The program has a wealth of information presented in an engaging and entertaining way.

Parent Orientation invitations for June 2014 will be mailed to students in the spring.  Please keep a look for it in your mailboxes. I look forward to meeting you.
