For Parents

Dear Parents and Family Members,

We hope that you are excited that your son or daughter will be becoming a member of The College of Wooster community.

Parents are invited to attend New Student Orientation in August. Sessions for parents are planned for the opening day of Orientation, Monday, August 18. For your planning purposes, please note that parent programs will end at 4:00 p.m. on Monday.

As you prepare to bring your student to Wooster, please read the Parent's Guide (.pdf) which provides answers to many questions about the first several weeks of the year.

We look forward to meeting you in August!

Carolyn L. Buxton
Senior Associate Dean of Students
