Parent and Family Orientation

International Parent & Family Orientation

We are thrilled to share in this exciting time for you and your student, and we look forward to welcoming you to campus.

Move-in Day for international students for the classes of '24 and '25 is Thursday, August 19. International student orientation will take place from August 20-21 and will provide your student with the opportunity to settle into life on campus early, receive information and guidance tailored to an international perspective, and have extra time to cover basic necessities, like opening a U.S. bank account or buying a cell phone. CMC international families will also have several opportunities to connect with the College and each other. Please join us for the following:

    • Attend the Parent and Family Orientation festivities on Sunday, August 22. Enjoy the Welcome to CMC! program and meet and mingle with fellow CMC families.
    • Join a special reception for international families at the home of President Hiram Chodosh on Friday, August 20, at 6:00 p.m.

Also, throughout the summer, the Offices of Alumni and Parent Relations and Dean of Students are hosting a series of receptions in cities around the world to welcome you and your student before you arrive on campus! For more information about the New Student Party in your area, visit the registration site.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
