Parents and Families Resource Guide

The transition to college life is as much a change for parents and families as it is for students. 

Your moral support, active listening and willingness to share in important decisions are essential to your student’s progress. It is important to demonstrate your openness to changes regardless of whether you agree with those changes. 

The college years and accompanying experiences can be valuable for the entire family. Maintaining open channels of communication as your son or daughter develops into a mature, self-reliant adult can make these years and experiences even more enjoyable and rewarding.
