Parents of Admitted Students
Congratulations on your student’s acceptance to Purdue! The College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) values parents as partners for student success. This is an exciting time as your student begins the next journey of their life as a Purdue Boilermaker.
Your child may be the one heading off to college, but the entire family is experiencing the journey. Your child, who has already accomplished so much, will be challenged with more opportunities for personal growth and intellectual development than ever before. You and your family will be learning how to challenge and support your student through their next individual journey of personal and professional growth. You’ve given them wings, and now it’s time for them to fly!
Purdue’s College of Health and Human Sciences (HHS) is a world-leader in education and research. Within HHS, your student will learn from world-class faculty and gain support from outstanding staff that are committed to student success. The growth of many majors within HHS is outpacing the national average, and Purdue’s Center for Career Opportunities (ranked #3 in the nation by CollegeMagazine.com) as well as our Career Development Specialist continually develop ways to expand opportunities for HHS students. Purdue’s strength in preparing students for careers is evidenced by being ranked No. 4 in preparing students for the workforce by the Wall Street Journal and No. 8 among U.S. universities in graduates’ long-term payback versus college cost by SmartMoney magazine.
A visit to campus is the best way to ensure that the College of Health and Human Sciences is the right fit. You and your family can meet with an Academic Advisor or speak with a current student, and your student has the opportunity to attend a class within his or her area of interest.
