We have developed a virtual orientation experience specifically for parents, family members, and guests.  This virtual experience will allow them to learn about CSU, get questions answered, and learn about ways to support students in their transition to CSU. 

There are two parts to Parent, Family, and Guest Virtual Orientation: the Online Orientation and Online Live Ram Orientation which is an optional program.

Online Orientation

Like your student, you will have access to modules that include campus resources and information specific to family and guests. Your progress in the online orientation system will be saved each time you log in and out of the system. You will have access to this system until the start of the spring 2021 semester. A Spanish version of this online orientation will be available for those who need a translated version. Online Orientation is now available by visiting https://online.otp.colostate.edu/?page=guest and creating an account.

Online Live Ram Orientation

This is an optional synchronous session offered for family and guests. In this session you will hear presentations from key campus offices that will give you information about supporting your student in their transition. Online Live Ram Orientation is offered on both December 10 and 11. You can attend on the day that works best for your schedule.  

To register for this session your student will need to sign you up when they are registering for online orientation. Your student can register for orientation at this website.
