Our Time with Your Student

It’s only been a few weeks since move-in, but for students and parents it's already a different world. That’s especially true if this is your student’s first year, or your first student off to college. And while your student is taking in a million new experiences and asking questions, I know that as parents you have plenty of questions of your own. And most likely topping that list is the question, "Is my student getting to feel at home?"

The Housing Search Process and Your Important Role

Housing search...already? It's true - the search for 2017-2018 housing can sneak up on your student quickly this fall. Many students will secure housing before they leave for winter break and others will wait as they consider alternative options.
