What We Do

Parent and Family Services sponsors a variety of programs to engage parents in their student’s continued success at Syracuse University.  Through Family Weekend, Syracuse Welcome, Parent E-newsletters, webinars and more we strive to keep you well-informed and connected to your student and the Syracuse University community.  The staff can answer your questions, offer assistance in locating campus offices and resources, and provide guidance/suggestions on how to support your student.
