Supporting your student's college transition

Sending your student to college marks a significant family transition. During this adjustment period, students experience various challenges while away from home. Our campus provides resources to support their successful transition.

In Residence Life, we primarily engage with students directly to establish relationships and address issues efficiently. While we welcome parent input, our focus is on empowering students to handle their own challenges while providing them with necessary resources.

How we support your student

  1. Availability for assistance and information.
  2. Educational, social, and leadership events for academic and personal development.
  3. Opportunities to develop interpersonal and problem-solving skills.
  4. Treating students as responsible adults capable of decision-making.
  5. Encouraging openness to diverse perspectives.

Clear communication with your student is essential, and we're here to assist and answer any questions you may have. If you have any issues, there may be a need to have your student sign a waiver so that the University is in compliance with its legal responsibilities. We encourage you to contact us with any questions and look forward to working with you.
