Welcome to Stanford
Welcome Zoom Events

The Parents' Club hosts Welcome Zoom Events in July and August for parents of incoming freshman and transfer students. Experienced club members answer burning questions our new families have about sending their students off to The Farm. Parent moderators lead break out groups to give new families a chance to meet each other and ask questions in a small group setting, fostering parent-to-parent discussions.

At our Welcome Tables, club volunteers help new parents feel welcomed, answer parent questions, share their personal stories about their Stanford student's experiences, and put families at ease as they said goodbye. The Club also hosts a Merchandise Table featuring Stanford parent and grandparent themed apparel and gear. After parents say goodbye to their student, they are welcome to join us for an NSO After-Party.
