Family Orientation Guide

Dear Family Member,

Welcome to Red Hawk 411 and Family Orientation! Orientation is a time for exploration and learning. Our goal is to provide you and your student with the content and information essential to the first year experience. Almost as important, we create the time and space for both you and your student to connect and build relationships with faculty, staff and fellow students. The transition to college is an exciting and rewarding time filled with awkward, hilarious and challenging encounters building into lifelong memories. At Montclair State University, “it’s all here” and with your partnership, we work to build a supportive community for your student’s success.

We hope that this Orientation experience will be a memorable one for both you and your student.

Sincerely, The Center for Leadership and Engagement
