Members of the administration, faculty, staff and student leaders will be on hand to answer all your questions and help guide you through your child's transition from high school to college life.

Directions and links to LaGrange area accommodations and restaurants are available. If you have any questions about Parents' Orientation events, please call the Admissions Office at 800-593-2885, or email

Q: Where will I stay during Orientation?
A: First-year students will stay in one of our residence halls on campus. Assignments are made upon check-in and an O-Team member will escort you to your room.

Q: Where will my parent(s) or guardian(s) stay during Orientation?
A: LaGrange College does not provide housing to parents and guardians attending Orientation.   A list of accommodations in the LaGrange area can be found here.

Q. When will I be able to register for fall classes during Orientation?
Students will be assigned an advisor as they check in and will meet with that advisor either early afternoon or early evening of their first day of Orientation.   Please remember that each student must pay his or her $200 tuition deposit in order to register for fall classes. Waiting until the beginning of fall term to register may mean that first-choice classes are closed.

Q: Will I be able to see my parent(s) /guardian(s) or leave campus during Orientation?
A: The Student and Parent Orientation programs begin together and then split and run separately until the event closes. The program is designed to give students and parents separate, but complementary, experiences. Students may not leave campus during Orientation.
