Family Weekend

Information for Fredonia Family Members

From move-in guides to event information, this page is designed to give parents the information they need to keep in touch with Fredonia.

Welcome to the Big Blue family!

You are an important part of Fredonia's family. College is a significant investment and milestone for your student. We know you may have questions and we want to provide you with answers. Our goal is to help you and your student transition to Fredonia as smoothly as possible and have a successful first semester.

2. Review the New Student Enrollment Guide & Checklist 

We have created an interactive New Student Enrollment Guide that will help you and your student complete a series of next steps to finalize their enrollment and registration. This guide provides “how to” like instructions as well as links to campus resources available to answer questions you may have.

Parent & Student Q&A Sessions:

These sessions offer topic-specific information to assist new students and their families to complete enrollment requirements and learn how to have a successful start to their Fredonia journey. Campus experts and leaders will be available to answer questions and provide helpful "how-to" information.

We hope you join us for these evening online open sessions from 6:30 p.m.-7:30 p.m.  Just click on the link below the topic to register for the session you are interested in participating in.
