Parents of current students

As a college student, your child should begin to take increasing responsibility for him or herself. Learning to make decisions independently is an important part of growing up—and of the college experience. But that doesn’t mean you can’t help or stay involved in your child’s life. Here are some links to information and services we think you will find useful:
