Family and Friends

This year, Orientation events will be limited to student participation due to COVID -19 restrictions. With the exception of helping students move into housing, family and friends will be asked to drop off their students and say farewell. We want to take every opportunity to reduce the chance of a COVID outbreak on campus by ensuring that everyone on campus has been vaccinated.

We are working to design opportunities for family and friends to connect with resources on campus virtually. We want to ensure you have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about your student’s new community
  • Meet the staff and administrators who support Evergreen students
  • Learn strategies to support your new Greener
  • Find the answers to all of your questions

Please stay tuned for additional information as it becomes available.
