Family Orientation

Welcome to St. John’s University and to our growing St. John’s family!

Register - Queens Register - Staten Island

During the Orientation Connection Days this summer, families of St. John’s students attending orientation are welcome to join us for our family program. The Family Orientation program will expose our extended St. John’s family to the programs and services that will support your St. John’s student. You will have opportunities to meet and interact with the academic college deans, representatives from University offices, and learn more about what to expect for your student as you plan for their arrival on campus this Fall. While Family Orientation is not required, it is highly recommended.
