Sibling Lumberjack Orientation

About Sibling Lumberjack Orientation

To assist our students and their families in the transition to college, we offer a sibling program that allows high-school-aged students/siblings an opportunity to learn more about SFA and its traditions, prepare for college, focus on career/major, and enjoy activities at our campus recreation center. If you are interested in learning more about this program which is scheduled concurrent with Freshman Orientation, please check the Sibling Orientation box on the Orientation reservation form. The cost to attend Sibling Orientation is $65 (child fee + a $25 fee for the sibling orientation) (Note: In order for a sibling to participate in Sibling Orientation, a parent must be staying in Nacogdoches throughout the duration of the Orientation session, and the sibling must be in 9th-12th grade.)
