Parent orientation occures during the Registration Day portion of Northern Exposure, as a separate concurrent program designed specifically for parents of new students. This program consists of special presentations designed to help family members assist with their student's transition to college in becoming familiar with Northern Kentucky University and its many resources.

Attendance for parents is optional but highly encouraged. The guest fee of $50 includes all program materials, meals, program facilitation, and an NKU tote.

The program will include opportunities to meet with students, faculty, staff and administrators to discuss issues such as:

  • academic performance
  • campus safety
  • money management
  • student life
  • available support services
  • roommate and housing issues
  • homesickness
  • expected student behavior
  • and much more!
