College Parent Success Conference
The College Parent Success Conference is for incoming parents who are looking for more resources and information just before school starts in August. Sessions will focus on topics that are important but weren't covered in orientation. The conference is appropriate for parents or adults who support an incoming FAU student. While younger siblings of the student are allowed to attend, we highly recommend that they don't.
The date of the Conference will be announced in late Spring 2016.
Registration is $10 for every two parents/guests.
Session topics will include:
- Academic Differences and Expectations: Parents will hear about ways students can succeed inside the classroom whether it be in-person or an online class. They will also get ideas on how their students can manage their time better.
- Parent Q and A Panel: This is a great time to talk to parents of current FAU students to hear about what it is really like to have a student at FAU.
- Why is my kid acting this way? : Parents will gain a better understanding of how their student is growing and maturing. They will also learn about ways they can support their student as they develop during college.
- Roundtable Discussions on the following topics: Understanding the "hidden" costs of attending college, roommate conflicts, Campus involvement, getting to FAU/Getting around Boca Raton, What can my kid do with this major?, Student employment, and more!
Registration will open in Summer 2016.
