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.
