Partnering with Parents offers parents of first-year students a series of free, interactive workshops to help them 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.
Topics for each workshop are subject to change.
Various faculty and staff members will participate and interact with parents to help students succeed at Cabrini.
Parents of first-year students will receive mailed invitations providing detailed information about each workshop, but please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
