Welcome Parents!

We are very excited to welcome your student and family to campus on August 13 for Move-In! However, after much difficult discussion, we have decided that it is in the best interest of reducing potential exposure that we are moving all of the parent activities planned for Friday, August 14 to remote activities. This includes the Arch Ceremony.

We will live stream the Arch Ceremony both on YouTube and on Facebook. We promise to have a great, close-up video feed so you will be able to watch your student march through the Arch. We will also have a professional photographer taking pictures of each student as they come through the Arch. These pictures will be available on the University’s flickr album shortly after the event where you will be able to download high resolution photos for free. We know this is disappointing news. The Arch Ceremony and the events we host for parents during Orientation Weekend are well-loved events for our entire campus community. We are disappointed with you. Please know that this decision has been made with the best of intentions of ensuring your student has a great, healthy start to their college experience. Our top priority always has been and always will be ensuring your student has an outstanding educational experience at Findlay. We greatly appreciate your support in helping us do just that.

Please watch your email, the Parent Facebook group, and this app for more information about the webinar, the links for the Arch Ceremony live feeds and information on how to download the pictures of your students.
