Parents Weekend

Thursday October 22

3:00 - 6:00 PM - Parent/Student and Advisor Conferences

  • Your student's advisor will contact you directly about setting up a 15-minute meeting between 3:00 - 6:00 p.m. If this time frame doesn't work for you, advisors will find another mutually agreed upon time. If you are a parent living abroad, advisors will try to set up time on Saturday, October 24 to connect. Your student should be present for this conversation. These meetings are in lieu of parent/teacher conferences that we've had in years past.
