A letter from the Parents Association president
Hello! The Parents Association Advisory Board welcomes you and your student—or students—to the University of Iowa family. Whether your son or daughter is beginning his or her first semester or is a returning student, it's great to be a Hawkeye!
No doubt you and your student have been adjusting during the past few weeks. Please take advantage of this opportunity to keep the lines of communication open. One of the best—but also most difficult—jobs we have as parents is to lend an ear. Check-in with your students, and also give them the opportunity to grow during these first months.
By sending your children to The University of Iowa, you have made a wonderful investment. The Parents Association works toward the goal of making sure each student has a rewarding and successful college career at Iowa. Parents Association efforts include:
Family Weekend is a wonderful tradition at The University of Iowa.

For more information, or to register, visit imu.uiowa.edu/family-weekend. (Registration deadline is October 28.)
Please visit us online at www.uiowa.edu/~parent or contact our on-campus liaison, Belinda Marner at 319-335-3557 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know how we can help you and your student. On, Iowa! Go, Hawks!
