General Information For Parents

  • Encourage your student to become involved in campus activities to make friends.
  • Encourage your student to stay at Shippensburg some weekends so that they can get a better feel for college.
  • Encourage your student to talk to the professors for their classes, especially if they have questions and/or concerns.
  • Do not push your student to major in something that they are not interested in.
  • Understand that your student will be busy with classes, homework, developing a social network, etc. and he/she may not be available every time you want to talk to him/her.
  • Learn about campus resources (ASP Counselor, Library, computer labs, tutoring in the Learning Center, Career Development Center, Counseling Center, Financial Aid Office, Registrar’s Office, etc.) and encourage your student to utilize them, if needed.
  • Do not put added pressure on your student to do well in college.  It can be a stressful time, especially for freshmen who are adjusting to college and being away from home.  Allow your student to talk about his/her difficulties and provide your student with support.
