Staying Connected

Throughout the year, we will work to keep parents connected to what’s happening here on campus through a combination of newsletters, mailings, special events, and social media.  The summer before your first-year or transfer student arrives on campus, the College Programming Office will mail you specific information pertaining to Orientation. Additionally, each summer you will receive a copy of our Parent and Family Wall Calendar with important dates throughout the year. During the Autumn Quarter, you will also receive more information about Family Weekend.

All parents will receive our quarterly Parent Connection Newsletter.  This publication will seek to set the stage for the events of the quarter and paint a picture of what your students are doing.  Additionally, we will highlight key student opportunities and profile important resources for both students and parents.  We encourage you to work with your student to keep your contact information current to ensure that you never miss an issue. 

In addition to print and emailed publications, we will be offering webcasts, web chats, and other online seminars designed for parents to keep you informed about key campus policies and resources.  These online resources will be archived so that you can take advantage of them at your convenience.  Throughout the year, we will also be asking for periodic feedback from you to ensure that you feel that you are receiving the information you need to know about what’s happening on campus.  Our partnership with our parents is very important to us so we always invite your feedback on the types of communications that you are receiving throughout the year.  If there is an issue, concern, or compliment that you feel we need to know about, please contact our Parent and Family Relations staff to share your thoughts with us.
