Parents and Families

A Message from E. Royster Harper

In a few short weeks, many families will be making the trip back to Ann Arbor, this time with plenty of empty room in the car, to pack your student’s belongings and head home, if only for a moment. And the student you will be picking up will be a little different from the one you dropped off on that day at the end of summer: buzzing with new information, talking about people and things you’ve never heard of, but also in many ways more confident.
