OnBoard with Parent & Family Connections - Final Edition
Can you believe how fast this summer went?!?! We are less than a week from the first day of classes for fall 2019! We hope our OnBoard newsletter series has played a small part in helping your family prepare for this moment.
While you're waiting for more than a short text or Snap, here are some things you can do.
  • Sign up for the Parent & Family Newsletter. However, to ensure you are getting proper communications in the future, especially if there is a parent/family event in your hometown, your student will need to verify the parent contact information in their myPurdue account.
  • Get your ideas together for a care package (as if you don't already have a laundry list of what they forgot at home).
  • Looking for ways to get involved? Consider joining the Parent and Family Volunteer Network and stay connected through various volunteer opportunities. Whether your schedule allows a one-time commitments to on-going opportunities, there are several ways to get connected throughout the academic year, offering various and flexible options. Parent & Family Volunteer Network participants have helped with activities during Boiler Gold Rush, postcards to incoming families, and hosting Parent & Family Socials in their local communities. Interested in becoming a member of the Parent & Family Volunteer Network? Let us know.
Give your feedback! Did you enjoy our transition series? Wish we would have touched on a particular subject? Wish the transition series lasted a bit longer into the academic year? Send us an email at parents@purdue.edu with other areas we should cover.

Now, take a deep breath and smile — YOU DID IT!
