Parenting is one of the toughest jobs there is. Being the parent of a college age child is no easier. To provide a little help, the Parents Association offers the following resources to help you manage the often confounding world of higher education – so you can help your son or daughter make the most of their education and enjoy these years yourself.
At UNF, students are our top priority. The Division of Academic Affairs is, as its names implies, responsible for the quality of the instruction and scholarship. The Division of Student Affairs is responsible for the “incidental learning” or that which takes place outside the classroom, the quality of life and the personal growth of students attending UNF. Please visit the Division of Student Affairs webpage to see what we are doing to support your student – and in the process, support you.
