For Parents

Well, you’ve made it this far. As a parent, you were there to encourage your student to take their education seriously. You’ve been their biggest fan in every activity they tried. And, chances are, you probably embarrassed them a time or two. It’s clear you have an important role in your student’s life.

That’s why you can help us to encourage your student on their adventure. Because you know that this adventure business is not all fun and games. You understand opportunity when you see it. You know that:

Internships and careers are about more than just building your resume.  They are a low-risk way to find out if your career field is one you can be passionate about.

Scholarships don’t just make college more affordable for families. They are a reward for hard work and mean students can work slightly less to have time pursue other opportunities.

Study abroad isn’t a vacation. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime chance to apply the skills from your major in a global setting. Globally-minded companies look for cultural and problem solving skills learned abroad.

Student clubs are fun. But they are also a chance for students to build their resume through leadership positions, industry-related events and networking opportunities.

Research isn’t just for professors. It’s a great way for students to get paid to get real-world experience. Better yet, working with a professor is a great way to find a mentor and future job reference.
