Parent Program: So How’s it Going?
It’s been almost two months since the semester started. How do you think your student is doing? How are you doing? What are you hearing from your student that you’d like to learn more about and what advice do you have for us? This conversation will be a chance for parents to talk with the Dean of Students and other staff about the transitions, growth and struggles of a typical college student. While we will be focusing on the first year, parents of all students are invited to join this conversation.
