Returning students and alumni also attend and share their experiences with new members of the UNF family. On-Campus Events. Welcome new Osprey parents, answer questions and assist families of first year students during Orientation, Move-In Day, Week of Welcome, or work the registration table during Family Weekend. Become part of the Parent’s Network. Add your name to a list of current parents who are willing take phone calls from new or prospective parents and assist UNF students who need assistance when traveling through your region.
As a parent, it’s
hard to be involved with the University of North Florida when you’re
in a different city, region or state! So in an effort to make things
a little easier for you, we would like to create Regional Parents
Clubs in various areas across the state to better serve you and your
family. Join a Regional Parents Club and meet other UNF parents,
serve the University you and your student love and cheer on the
Clubs can take on various forms and purposes. Some clubs may focus on
coordinating events and services like ride-share programs or send-off
parties, others may want to sponsor a scholarship for incoming
students from the area attend an athletic game in your area or host
an athletic game watch party. Whatever programs each club plans, they
all have the same mission—to establish relationships and strengthen
ties with UNF parents in their respective communities.
We are happy to
report that there is interest in forming a Regional Parent Club in
South Florida. Interested parents should contact Theresa Borges,
Parent Advisory Council member, at email@example.com.
