Family Events


Orientation is not just for new students, but for parents and families too! Our family orientation program is specifically designed for parents, providing them with information they want to know about health and safety, books, food, transportation and more. Our student orientation advisors help answer questions from the student perspective, and parents leave the program feeling relieved and excited about their students' choice in coming to Binghamton.

Summer Send-offs

Available in late July and early August,  Summer Send-offs create a wonderful opportunity for Binghamton University's newest students and families to come together and meet other Bearcats from their hometown!  
Be sure to register as part of our Bearcat Family to get notifications.
