What to Expect

Student Life and Success Workshops for Parents

Your student's personal and academic well-being is important to all of us. University staff will present a variety of  concurrent workshops to parents and guests on topics ranging from student safety to life skills needed to survive the first year of college, and more. While your student is meeting other students in their chosen major, you’ll have a choice of attending several different workshops.


You can elect to attend a variety of workshops from:

  • University Housing
  • The First Year Experience (Freshman only)
  • Career Center
  • Campus Safety-University Police Department
  • Counseling and Wellness
  • Student Financial Services/Financial Aid
  • Student Life and Leadership
  • A Sample University-Level Course

Information Fair

Take the opportunity to direct your questions to representatives from programs such as Financial Aid, University Housing and Food Service, Student Health Center, Study Abroad, Honors, and more.

Campus Tour

During a walk through our beautiful campus, your guide will answer any questions you have about campus resources, community, and student life.


Sessions include morning coffee/orange juice and a buffet-style lunch with your son or daughter in the BMU Auditorium as well as refreshment at program conclusion.
