Whether this is your first student to attend university or your last, the decision to attend Bentley University is an important one, and we are delighted that you have chosen to be part of the Bentley family.
As a parent or family member we understand that you are likely to have questions about Bentley. These questions may be similar to those of your student, but they can also be very different.
To help answer your questions and introduce you to our community, we have created several opportunities for engagement and information sharing. Our resources are available online, and can be accessed at a time convenient to your schedule. You are welcome to look at all that is available or select those that are most relevant. Should you have additional questions or simply want to speak with a member of our staff, please feel free to contact us directly.
One of the first resources that we ask new students and families to review is the New Student Guide. This guide has valuable information about the onboarding experience. Also, please note that New Student Orientation will take place January 18-21, 2024 and our International Student program will begin on January 17. Residential students will move-in prior to the start of the program, more details will be provided in the New Student Guide which will be available in Mid-October.
If your new falcon starts in Fall 2024, we will provide this guide and details about their New Falcon Experience in May 2024.
Student Affairs Video Series
Below are a series of videos featuring many of the departments and resources available to students at Bentley. We encourage you to look through these videos at your convenience. Should you have any questions, feel free to contact any of the presenters directly, as they would be happy to speak with you. You may also email questions to firstname.lastname@example.org should that be more convenient. If your student will be living on campus, we encourage you to review more information here.
New Student Orientation
To ensure a smooth transition to Bentley University, we utilize a tiered approach to onboarding our new students. Bentley Beginnings is the start of the journey, then course registration, and we complete the experience with self guided learning courses and an on-campus Orientation Program. In addition, we provide some other experiences to engage our new falcons before the start of the semester:
- Monthly Newsletters
- Virtual Falcon Social Events
- Pre-Orientation Virtual Meet and Greet with Orientation Group
