The Parent Podcast



The Parent Podcast is designed to help parents better support the academic, emotional and professional needs of their student. College is an exciting, dynamic, and at times, overwhelming period in a student's life that presents as many challenges as it does opportunities. Finding the proper balance between educational, professional and social interests is an ongoing concern for even the most focused and dedicated students. Financing a college education, identifying internships and jobs, developing a body of work, and participating in student leadership opportunities and organizations can be a full-time job in itself. Parents can play an important role in helping their student continue to move forward.

The Parent Podcast will be available on this page at the beginning of each month, and will also be featured in our monthly e-newsletters.  If you are not already signed up to receive the newsletter, subscribe now

Also available is a subscription to The Parent Podcast through your iTunes account.

To help parents best support the ongoing needs of their student, The Parent Podcast focuses each month on a specific college office or academic issue.  It is our pleasure to introduce this new resource to you.
