Information for Parents & Families
Parent and Family Welcome will be held on August 22 and 23, 2019. With programs beginning the evening of August 22, running through the late afternoon of August 23. Please see below for highlighted events and information.
Thank you for participating in Parent and Family Welcome. This event will provide you with information that will assist you in continuing to be great mentors to your Vandals. We are eager to partner with you and your student on this exciting educational endeavor.
Opening weekend will be very exciting for you and your student, mixed with just a bit of anxiety for all involved. That is completely okay as this is the beginning of the next stage of life for your Vandal and your family. We stand ready to provide assistance throughout the University of Idaho experience for you and your student.
You can stay in contact with the University of Idaho by using one of the following options:
- Visit the U of I Parents Website to gather information and subscribe to the parents newsletter.
- Use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to connect with the Dean of Students Office about questions you may have.
We understand that this is a significant life event for you and your family. We also understand that this is a substantial investment of time and family resources. We are deeply committed to helping your Vandal navigate the opportunities ahead and look forward to partnering with you so that your students academic and personal goals may be achieved.
