Quotes from parents about Orientation: 

Parent Orientation is a great way for parents to learn more about Malone and the opportunities available for their student as they sit through various workshops with other Malone parents. Students are busy with activities of their own, and the workshops offer a place for parents to go to meet other parents and administrators from Malone. The orientation culminates with a session for all parents in the chapel where a representative from each of the administrative offices speaks about the role they play in the education of students at Malone. Then the students join their parents for the second half of the chapel session, where there is a time of praise and worship, and then a message from the President. Parent Orientation at Malone is a very worthwhile experience, which my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed.
