Parents and Families

You are a vital partner in your child’s college search process. We recognize that as a parent or guardian, you have unique concerns (and maybe even a little anxiety) about sending your child to college for the first time. You are not alone. We want you to know there are many resources to help you navigate a sometimes confusing, but ultimately rewarding, college search process with your student.

The College has a comprehensive website where you are encouraged to connect with other parents »
