Move-In Day

This is an opportunity to meet other parents and give yourself some much needed pampering after a long day of moving boxes into your student’s room. Take advantage of services including blood pressure screening, relaxation techniques, massages, zumba, games, healthy snacks and activities based on "STEP Up!” It’s a wonderful way to send yourself off in style.

Family Weekend

You're invited! Family Weekend offers parents, siblings and other family members a taste of campus life, an opportunity to visit your son's or daughter's campus home, to meet other Rowan families, as well as attend a variety of exciting events.

Financial Bootcamp

Whether you are thinking about a 2 year or 4 year college program, a technical college or program, or a training program leading to a certification, it’s important to plan for what your student or you will be studying, where your student will enroll and how your student and you will pay for it.
