Information for Parents
As the parent of a first-time university undergraduate, you may be experiencing mixed emotions as your student prepares to make such a big step. You are proud of his/her accomplishments, but like most parents you have concerns about your student’s future. It’s true that students have much to consider and many choices to make. Research has shown that parental advice is a strong influence as students make these decisions.
For incoming students, New Student Orientation is where they are able to get answers and guidance to set them off on the right path from the first day. In a similar fashion, UFV’s special Parent Orientation is designed to answer your questions and address your concerns about the university experience.
UFV believes that parents are valuable partners and coaches in any students’ academic journey. Having knowledge about campus departments, programs, and services will make it easier for you to discuss suitable resources and to encourage your student to seek assistance when required.
Fall Parent Orientation 2013 will be held in June on Abbotsford and Chilliwack campuses. If you are not able to attend and have questions, please read the Parent Orientation Handbook or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
