Helping Students Succeed at Ambrose
Dear Parents,

The end of October marks the realization that university is not only an opportunity to build community and establish what, for many, will be lifelong friendships, but it is also an institution of higher learning. I do hope that with reading week on the horizon that your families will have opportunities to reconnect, rest and be ready for the final push through December. 

Take time to listen as your student speaks. As final projects, papers and exams are approaching, your student may be feeling overwhelmed; if you get the sense that this is true for your student, remind them of all the resources offered through our student development department

From one parent to another, let’s be the listening ear and the encourager that our student needs. The Parent Engagement office is here to encourage and support you as families as you navigate through these University years. Please do not hesitate to contact my office if there is any way that we can assist you. Be sure to check out the upcoming events on campus at
