Message to Parents
We realize that sending your student to college is a time of tremendous transition for your family. All students go through an adjustment period and experience many ups and downs while living away from home. There are many resources here on campus available for your student to manage this transition successfully.
Here in Residence Life and Housing our preference is to deal directly with the student. This enables us to establish a relationship with your student and helps to get to the crux of the issues more efficiently. We do welcome parent input and questions at any time. Our goal is to provide parents with the resources which they can pass on to their student to help them to help themselves.
It is important that students have support and encouragement from home while being allowed to mature through their own experiences. By all means be there for your student as a sounding board, but let him or her handle their own problems as much as possible. Your student's success is dependent upon his or her own ability to function independently.
The information on this webpage is provided to parents so that you can be an informed resource for your student.
