Volunteering at campus events provides an excellent opportunity to assist the College while remaining connected to your student during his or her stay at Pitzer. Parents may help provide programmatic support for any of the following events: 

  • Parent Orientation
    Parent Orientation is a wonderful opportunity for new parents to learn about Pitzer College and get acquainted with the campus.
  • Family Weekend
    All parents and family members of Pitzer students are invited to campus for this annual event held in February. This weekend is a great opportunity for students to share their life at Pitzer with loved ones. Campus Event ambassadors serve in the following ways:
