Important Dates

Parent Orientation during New Titan Days

While your student is registering for classes, you will have the opportunity to tackle some of the logistics (bills and financial aid) and learn strategies for supporting your student's success. Many campus resources will be available and leading workshops designed to empower you: Student Affairs & staff, Vice President for Academic Affairs or Associate Dean, Health Center Director, College Counselor, Disability Services Director, and staff from the Career Center.

Two guest lunch tickets will be available per registered student.  The cost for each additional meal is $8.

These days are filled with a lot of listening and sitting and are not necessarily well suited for children.  We do not offer childcare.  Please consider this when deciding which guests will attend New Titan Days.

Unable to attend? Please email Gina Vance to find out how you can receive the materials from these on campus days.


Family Day

Westminster College Family Day (Saturday, November 5) has always provided special memories for our students and our extended college family — parents, grandparents, brothers and sisters. We invite you to relax and spend the day enjoying activities and events planned just for you. Families have the opportunity to dine with President Richardson just before heading to a Titan football game. Reservations can be made online with a credit card at



Fresh Start is our three-day orientation program (August 28-30, 2015) which is required of all new students.  Parents and families are welcome to attend events through Matriculation Convocation on Friday. Our Fresh Start program offers a great opportunity for students to get to know our campus, classmates, and to ensure a successful transition.  You will have the opportunity to meet with your academic advisor, participate in the discussion of your summer reading book, experience campus activities, and learn about the resources available to aid in your success.  The Fresh Start staff is made up of approximately 60 upper class student leaders who are so excited to welcome you and show you the ropes in a place they’ve come to love!
