Parent Association

Partnering parents and family members with the College to create a better understanding of the college experience and the growth of our students.

Your participation as a partner in the Parent Association will help to grow the Parent Program into an even more valuable resource. Your financial support, in addition to your ongoing involvement and input, will give direction in fine-tuning our current initiatives and in adding programs to better meet your needs.

It is so rewarding to be able to help families negotiate the transitions involved in coming to, working through and graduating from College. Numerous initiatives are currently in place to give parents and family members:

  • Regular and timely communication about campus happenings and the challenges and opportunities facing our students at various times of the year
  • Resources that will help you understand the stages and phases most students experience throughout their college years
  • Access to the Parents and Family e-newsletter
  • On-campus opportunities to meet with students, faculty, staff and other parents.

We look forward to working with you to make Potsdam an even better place for our students.
