Parents and Student

Welcome to the Sprog Parent Orientation Website.

We are delighted to have you as the newest members of our Southwestern community. This site includes information relevant to your visit to Southwestern for Sprog Parent Orientation. We know that this can be both an exciting and stressful time for you and your student. We hope to make the process smooth and enjoyable.

Throughout the summer you will receive communications from Southwestern with information regarding your student’s transition to college, including the updated Families Magazine. If you are unsure if the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations has your current mailing and email address you may complete the Parent Info Form here.

Wondering if you should attend Sprog Parent Orientation? We think so! Our data shows that students with families in attendance at Parent Orientation actually have a higher GPA and graduate at a higher rate than their peers without family in attendance. Sprog Parent Orientation provides vital information to assist in your student’s transition to Southwestern and your transition to becoming a Pirate Parent. 

We hope to see you at Sprog Orientation, one of our upcoming Send-Off Parties, and at Move-in on August 15. Please contact our office at anytime with questions.
