At the New Parent Coffee, you will learn more about schoolwide opportunities for partnering, volunteering and our philosophy of giving. You will also be joined by members of our Institutional Advancement team and our Executive Leadership Team. I am excited for you to get to know me better and my role at OLP as well as connect with other parents early on in the new year.

We ask that all incoming Freshman parents attend the morning coffee event! Please plan on attending the designated session, according to the first letter of your daughter’s last name.
