Just for Families

Just for Families



Parents and families are considered extended members of the Georgia State University community. At Incept, we have designed an orientation program that introduces and welcomes parents and family members to the Panther family. This program runs the length of the student’s day with sessions that are focused on the concerns and needs of parents, families, and guests. It is our intention that all guests and students will leave Georgia State University with all the information and resources needed to be successful through the first year and beyond. We hope that you will stay active and take full advantage of the programs offered through Parent Relations and the Parents Association.

Freshman Convocation
Freshman Convocation is a formal event that welcomes new students to campus. It is held the Sunday before classes begin in the fall semester. Faculty and staff show their regalia and a recognized speaker will deliver the keynote address. This event is the kick-off for Panther Welcome, a calendar of events that gives new students a taste of campus life. The whole Panther family is encouraged to attend Freshman Convocation.
