Most importantly, at Orientation, you become a Celt.
At UST’s Orientation, you will make your first UST friends, meet your professors, join clubs, and serve the Houston community. We require you to attend Orientation, but we make your time on campus fun and engaging. Find out more below!

Parents, legal guardians, and families play a vital role in the success of their students. Families have the option to attend one of our Family Celt ROAR Days with their incoming student throughout the summer. During Family Celt ROAR Day, you will learn about the resources available to your student outside of the classroom to help them reach graduation. At this time, Family Orientation for the Fall has not been scheduled. When Family Orientation is scheduled, we will update this website. Family Orientation is designed for parents and legal guardians only and we do not have space to accommodate any extra guests.
Graduate Student Orientation
Each graduate program hosts their own orientation session to tailor information to their programs. If you are an incoming graduate student and have questions, reach out to your program to ask questions directly.
Welcome to the Celt Family! This event is a three hour program including a keynote speaker, a Q&A Panel with representatives across campus, and a social hour intended for you to meet a variety of faculty, staff, alumni, and current students. The families of new students are invited to attend with a maximum of 2 attendees per student. While we love your students as you do, we ask for parents and relatives only at this event.
