Parent/Guardian Information Session

We will hold an information session on the URI Chinese Language Flagship Program for parents/guardians (no students) on Monday, August 27th from 3:30-4:30pm in Hillside Hall. Flagship Students should indicate on the Flagship Orientation Registration Form, whether or not their parents will attend this meeting. Parents are asked to plan to leave shortly after this meeting, so that we can begin Flagship Orientation for students in the 2017 Cohort promptly at 5:00pm

An exact schedule for the week will be distributed upon check-in, but students in the 2017 Cohort should expect a full schedule of activities August 29th-Sept 2nd, including linguistic preparation, cultural events, and getting-to-know-you activities.  Meals will be provided from August 29th to September 2nd.
