Family Programs

The Office of New Student & Family Programs seeks to partner with family members to foster their participation and involvement in their students’ college experience and forge a strong bond between the University, students, and their family. Through information, programs, and services, we aid in both students’ and families’ transition to college and to the changing dynamics of the family member-college student relationship. A few of the programs, services, and opportunities we currently offer are a Family Programs Website, Parent & Family Association Membership, Family Orientation during the SOAR Program, Family Weekends, Electronic Newsletters, and Family Volunteer Opportunities.

A Parent & Family Association Membership is an opportunity for family members to be more informed and involved with the Georgia Southern community. Membership includes student eligibility for the Parent & Family Association Scholarship, a monthly newsletter, access to a Parent & Family Association message board, special events during Fall Family Weekend, local and national discounts, and much more! A one-year membership is $35 per family.
