Join the Parents Association

As a member of the Parents Association you can actively participate in the life of your Osprey student and interact with and lend support to other parents. The association provides assistance to parents by helping in the transitional time when your student begins college and throughout the undergraduate years. You can volunteer for major activities such as planning Family Weekend, participation on Orientation panels, and/or serve as Regional Area Coordinators to host send offs and be a contact for incoming parents. The Parents Association meets on campus twice a year to plan the year’s activities.

Special Projects


A portion of the budget has been used to fund scholarships, grants, and send-off events. Grants were made for the Osprey Challenge Course Low Elements, The Brooks College of Health Living Learning Community, Women’s Center Friday Lounge, and the Career Services Major Minor Fair. Two $300 Book Scholarship as a prize for a drawing at our business meetings was also approved by the membership.


Due to the reduction in Bright Futures and the higher tuition costs, we thought it would be important to help more students. Last fall we awarded four students $3,000 scholarships to help them complete their degrees. The recipients were selected from over 60 applicants. For Fall 2016 we awarded four new recipients.
