Summer Welcome 2021-22

We are so excited to welcome the Classes of 2024 and 2025 on campus this year! Pitzer’s Office of Alumni & Family Engagement is hosting a series of welcome events for families of first-year students and sophomores that you won’t want to miss. We hope you and your student can join us for some or all of these events!

July 29, 2021, 9 – 10 a.m.
Virtual Summer Welcome Reception

Become acquainted with the dynamic Pitzer community and connect with current families, students, and college representatives before arriving on campus! Whether you are traveling to Pitzer for Move-In Day or cheering on your student from home, you are welcome at this virtual reception. This reception will be recorded and available for viewing on Pitzer@Home for those who are unable to attend.

August 16–19, 2021, 9 a.m. – noon
Virtual Family Orientation

Let’s get prepared to venture onto Pitzer’s campus! During this four-day Virtual Family Orientation, you’ll receive a campus-wide introduction to Pitzer, hear from leaders in all types of departments, ranging from athletics to student affairs, and learn more about all aspects of life at Pitzer. For those who are unable to attend, these informational sessions will be recorded and available on Pitzer@Home for you to view afterward.

August 21–22, 2021
Move-In Weekend

The day has finally come––time to move your student onto campus! Whether your student’s Move-In Day is August 21 or August 22, while the primary focus will be on student move-in and orientation, we have a few things planned for family members on this special day. Make sure to stop by our parent registration booth to check-in and receive your welcome tote bag. In addition, take a break, cool off, and enjoy a few Pitzer family activities at the PZ Family Lounge, hosted by the Office of Alumni & Family Engagement.
