Chatham University

Family Orientation 2019

Save the Date

Wednesday, August 21 / 12:00 pm

We are very excited to welcome you and your student to Chatham University! We understand that beginning college is not only a life change for your student, but also for you. That’s why Chatham offers a one-day Family & Friends Orientation to help answer any last minute questions or concerns you may have.

This orientation will be on Wednesday, August 21 beginning at noon on the Shadyside Campus. The event is designed specifically for you – to meet staff and family members of current students, as well as help you with this major transition. None of the events are mandatory – it is completely your decision what you would like to participate in!

The Family & Friends Orientation Schedule is not available yet. Please save the date and plan to join us on Wednesday, August 21st.  

In addition, as part of the community celebration for Chatham's 150th Anniversary, Family and Friends will be invited to attend the Pirates game on Sunday, August 25th.  Chatham students, faculty, staff, alumni and family will be gathering at PNC Park for the 1:30 pm game.  Special ticket pricing and giveaways will be provided soon.  Save the date for Sunday, August 25th.  

Families will be asked to register for orientation.  Registration will be available in June.
