Welcome to the Parent section of the Centre website. We hope this information is useful to you as you begin your Centre journey. While the college years represent an important voyage for your son or daughter, we believe that it will also be a time of learning and growth for you, too! The Parent Programs Office is here to help you with an abundance of information, from sending care packages to your students and arranging transportation to and from campus, to finding accommodations for your visits during Family Weekend in the fall and Commencement in the spring.
A wealth of information is available in our PARENT HANDBOOK (Helpful Information to the left on this page), including what to bring and not bring on move-in day, frequently asked questions about financial aid, residence and Greek life, information on academic policies and what the Centre for Career and Professional Development can do for your student, information about Parsons Student Health and Counseling Center, as well as a detailed listing of local restaurants, retailers, storage facilities, accommodations, and other services you and your student may need.
Our Centre College Parents Facebook page is also a very active community where you can find many of the latest campus updates and news (as well as share your own with us!).
