• Families and Parents

    Welcome parents and families! Hamline strives to provide a warm and welcoming environment where undergraduate students and their parents can get questions answered and receive assistance.

    If you have questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to contact the Dean of Students Office. Their most important job is to act as a resource and advocate for the students of Hamline University, and they are always happy to help.

    For Parents of Incoming First-Year Students

    Summer Orientation and Registration (SOAR) is the first of two required orientation programs for all incoming first-year students. During this two-day/overnight program, students and parents/family members will get the opportunity to meet the New Student Mentors, mingle with other incoming Pipers, register for classes, and get your questions answered.

    Fall Orientation is the second required orientation program for all first-year students. The program kicks off three days before classes start and includes move-in day for on-campus students. Students not living on campus will still attend programming three days prior to the academic year and will commute to campus just as they will when attending classes. Parents and guests are welcome to join their student for move-in day and spend the morning helping their student get settled in to their room before the student orientation begins that afternoon.

    For All Parents

    The Parent E-Newsletter is an excellent resource, providing updates and stories about life on campus, Hamline students, faculty, and other events and useful information about Hamline.
