Welcome, parents & families! When a student selects a university, it’s a decision that affects the entire family. Not only is your student embarking on the next journey of their life, but so are you. We understand how this transition to college can be challenging and difficult to adjust to as a parent. That is why we are here to help support you and your student throughout his or her college career.

Programs like orientation and Family Weekend, alongside the Parent Association, help connect parents to their student’s college experience. This collaborative support system of university, student, and family provides the foundation needed for whatever the future holds.
