All first-year students to Calvin for the fall semester will attend QUEST. QUEST is a three and a half day orientation program that takes place prior to the start of classes. After helping your student move in (if they are resident students), plan to participate in afternoon events especially for family members.


QUEST runs from August 31–September 3

What to expect
At QUEST you will
  • Visit the Parent Oasis tent (sponsored by the Parent Relations Office)
  • Eat at the family cookout
  • End the day by saying “good-bye” and sending your student off to start the first semester at Calvin!

The Prince Conference Center is available for a limited number of rooms and a fee. If you call to reserve a room, mention that you are with the QUEST program. There are also off-campus options nearby.

Some things to keep in mind about registration
  • Students register online using e-Enroll for QUEST. When they register themselves, they can also register you and any additional family members.
  • We welcome family members of all ages to assist in the move-in and the family cookout. At 6 p.m., we have scheduled a time to say good-bye as students will start their programming at 6:30 p.m.
  • A $150 orientation fee will be charged to your student’s account in early September.
