Vida Estudiantil en UHUniversity of Houston Parent & Family Programs
As parents and family members, you are officially part of the University of Houston family. We recognize the critical role parents play in their student’s educational experience. We believe that establishing a positive relationship with parents and family members is an important factor in the continued success of your student.
Coming to college is a big step, regardless of a person’s background. Students often face challenges, which may overwhelm and confuse them as they continue to evolve and change throughout their collegiate experience. Parents and family members can often help make these obstacles easier to overcome. By building a relationship with you, we strive to create an environment where parents and family members are informed and involved with their student’s college career.
We hope you will take full advantage of the opportunities that await you and that you will continue to play an active role in your student’s life. We encourage you to utilize our website at uh.edu/parents as it can provide you with helpful information about UH programs, resources, policies and procedures. Remember to sign up to receive The Cougar Connection, our monthly parent e-newsletter, to ensure you receive important information, updates and tips, and to register for our annual Family Weekend event that occurs every fall semester. If you have any questions, comments or feedback please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
Best of luck to you and your student this year; we look forward to seeing you on campus!
