Parent & Family Programs

Welcome to the OU Family!

As part of your student’s support system, your role is critical to their success from orientation through graduation. Student Affairs, on behalf of the University, is eager to partner with you in that effort - providing resources, support, and opportunities to connect your family to the diverse range of experiences available at OU.

Is your student attending Camp Crimson this summer? We invite you to join us at one of our Parent and Family Orientations this summer. Choose the session you would like to attend:

  • July 13-14 (Concurrent with BOOMER Camp Crimson Session), 
  • July 20-21 (Concurrent with SOONER Camp Crimson Session), and 
  • August 10-11

The July PFP Orientation sessions align with Camp Crimson dates to allow you and your student(s) to end your experiences at the same time on Friday. While your students are having the time of their lives meeting peers and learning about campus, consider joining us at a session created just for you. Hurry! Spots are filling up fast.
