Partnering with Parents offers parents of first-year students a series of free, interactive workshops to help navigate their students’ first year at Cabrini College.
The workshops address many topics, including first-year challenges for students, financing college, and what to expect when students move back home after their first year away.
Members of the Cabrini College faculty and staff will offer parents helpful strategies. Opportunities to meet other families add to this enriching experience.
Parents of first-year students will receive mailed invitations providing detailed information about each workshop, but please feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.
