As a parent, you have also begun a new phase in life as you take a supportive role in your student's newest endeavor. We want to assure you that you will not be alone in experiencing this transition. Our campus is dedicated to support and assure the well-being of your student as well as address any questions or concerns you have. Specifically, the Office of First-Year Experience is geared toward providing you student resources that ensure a smooth transition.
