Parents Program

Saturday, August 17

4 – 4:30 p.m. >  Farewell to Parents

(Residential Colleges) Parents, it’s time to say goodbye to your new college students. You

don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay with them. While your son/daughter dives into

the Great Beginnings activities we have planned, you are invited to sit in on information

sessions just for parents.


5 – 6 p.m. >  What to do Next… A Parent’s Guide to Life After August 20th

(Barkley Room, Curris Center) This “parents only” information session will provide parents

of new college students with tips and tricks for keeping your students on track without

limiting their independence.

6 – 7 p.m. >  Parent and Family Reception

(Ballroom, Curris Center) We will have special guest speaker Dr. Robertson, Vice President

of Student Affairs, as well as appetizers and beverages for you to enjoy!
