To: Parents of all New U.Va. Students
From: Patricia M. Lampkin, Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer
Greetings and welcome to the University of Virginia community. As your daughter or son prepares to enter the University, the coming year promises change, excitement, and the start of a new chapter for your family.
Summer Orientation marks the beginning of this transition for you and your son or daughter. We look forward to introducing you to the many unique aspects of the University and to answering any questions or concerns. Please plan to participate in the Parent Orientation program so you can learn more about the University and the student experience. The parent program begins with an afternoon reception on the first day and continues with a full day of programming on the second day. Due to changes in this year’s overall program, some of the parent sessions may be constrained by space. Please have your student carefully read more details about this when they register you and himself/herself for orientation. The deadline to register is June 1, and your student is responsible for the registration process. Details are available at: www.virginia.edu/orientation/summer/register.html.
Beyond orientation, we look forward to your involvement in programs planned especially for parents and family members. Family Weekend, programs and activities in your region sponsored by UVaClubs and UVaFamilies, athletic events, travel programs, publications, and the University’s website all offer avenues for you to stay informed about the University of Virginia and become an active part of this community.
In particular, we invite you to become involved in the following ways:
We deeply value the support of parents in the educational process. Without question, your influence and guidance will remain strong as your student meets new academic challenges, grows academically and socially, and develops an expanding sense of independence.
I look forward to seeing you this summer at orientation, when I will have the opportunity to welcome you and your daughter or son to the Grounds. We hope orientation will be the beginning of a rewarding new chapter in your family life as you join the University of Virginia community.

Vice President and Chief Student Affairs Officer
