Parents have the opportunity to attend information sessions hosted by Residence Life, Student Financial Services, and numerous other campus offices. Further, parents will connect with other first year parents, faculty and key administrators through a variety of social and academic programs. 

We recognize that this is a transitional time for the entire family.  Whether this is your first student attending a higher education institution or your last we will work to support you and your student so that they will succeed at Belmont.
