Parents and Families
Watching your student transition into college life is both a rewarding and a challenging experience.
Each student’s educational experience is unique and is a direct result of his or her partnership with administration, faculty, staff, and family. We understand your desire to stay connected as you encourage your student to assume ownership of his or her academic experience. Our goal is to provide you with helpful information that will assist you in supporting your student’s success.
As a parent, the more you are familiar with Purchase College, the more you will be prepared to guide your student on his or her academic journey. Purchase has a long tradition of commitment to intellectual and cultural diversity. The opportunities to get involved here are virtually limitless. We hope you will encourage your student to take advantage and get involved.
College is your student’s opportunity to develop the academic proficiencies and life skills that he or she will use to launch an adult life. We look forward to working with you to foster your student’s development
