Parent & Family Programs

The Office of Parent & Family Programs is happy to welcome you and your student to USF!

Your student's decision to attend USF is life changing, offering the opportunity to achieve academic success, build new friendships, develop new interests, explore new ideas, engage in our local community, and create a network of supporters who will help in any way possible.

While your student has been attending college, transferring institutions will signal a time of transition for you, your family, and your student once again. All of your feelings around the transition are normal, and here at Parent and Family Programs, we want to help you navigate the transition that you and your family are going through.

The Office of Parent and Family Programs is your office on campus. Please learn about how you can engage with the office and take advantage of the resources offered by the department. Stay connected by:

  • Reading the BULLetin, a monthly e-newsletter full of resources and helpful information for both you and your student
  • Following us on Facebook and Instagram to receive weekly updates and connect with other family members
  • Attending events such as Family & Friends Weekend and Spring Family Day
  • Enjoying informative publications like our Bull Family Connect that will help you understand your student's growth and development at USF
