COVID-19 Policies & Protocols

  • How do I register for family weekend?

    For Family Weekend 2022, we’ll provide an online registration link here.

  • How do I sign up for my parent/advisor conference?

    Parent-advisor conference signs ups are now open! In advance of your visit, please be sure to set up a conference with your child’s advisor following the directions below. Please note that this year you have the option of meeting in person or via Zoom.

    Here’s how to set up your conferences:

    1. Log into your Parent Portal.
    2. Click on the orange box that says “Advisor Conference.” (Please disregard the language that suggests signing up for multiple conferences; you can only sign up for one conference with your child’s advisor!)
    3. Follow the directions for choosing a conference time. Once you choose a time, please click the “Reserve Times” button to save the appointment. You should see both a Zoom link and a physical location for meeting.
    4. Once you’re done setting up your appointment, click the “Download Schedule” button to get a pdf of your schedule. Please bring it with you.
      Once you sign up for a slot, your child’s advisor will be in touch via email to confirm whether you want to meet in person or via Zoom.

    If you have any questions, please contact Cherrie Collins by email or by phone at (413) 348-5027. Thank you again, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

    Easthampton and the surrounding Pioneer Valley are home to many hotels and restaurants, however, because of the five colleges in the area, reservations can fill up quickly.
