Families in Transition


In just a few weeks, your student will be joining the FIT community and starting a new journey with us. It goes without saying that we are all navigating uncharted territory as we plan for a transitional experience that will be completely virtual. However, notwithstanding a pandemic, we have been busy planning for an engaging and informative Orientation experience which we hope will give your student an opportunity to connect with peers and learn about the various support services and resources at FIT. It is in this spirit of engagement that we want to take this opportunity to invite you to attend Families In Transition, a virtual family welcome session scheduled during Orientation Week.

Families in Transition is a great opportunity for FIT families to get a feel for student life and to connect with other folks who will be making similar transitions. The session will include a welcome as well as an interactive presentation on what to anticipate now that the young adults in your life are beginning a new journey. Please join us as we invite you to take this opportunity to feel welcomed and secure in the knowledge that your student is in good hands. We believe that this will give you a unique perspective on how to support your student as they transition to FIT.

Families In Transition (Family Welcome Session)
Date: Friday, August 28, 2020
Time: 2pm (EST)
Location: The pre-recorded presentation is embedded above

A series of Live Virtual Receptions will follow beginning at 3pm which will include meet-and-greet sessions with Student Success educators from various FIT departments. Additional information will be sent to you once we have received your RSVP.
