Hi NU Family Members!
Here at Northwestern, we are all about the student experience. Through our work everyday, we strive to build a well-rounded student, ensuring education is happening both inside and out of the classroom. However, we also look to include the family members of our students in this educational process. And, as you can imagine, that is where you come in! You are an important part of the development of your son/daughter, and we are here to help you along the way.
The Division of Student Affairs and the Office of New Student and Family Programs constantly works to better the experience of our Northwestern students and family members. You will find several resources available on this site. Whether you are new to the NU community and looking for more information about Parent and Family Orientation during Wildcat Welcome, or looking forward to a fantastic fall Family Weekend, or perusing our parent and family member communication resources, this is the place to discover it all. And if you still have questions, we are a short email away (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Whether you are right down the road in Chicago, in the beautiful south or even over seas, we are here to act as your resource and guide to Northwestern. Please be a part of our community; we are here to welcome you to Wildcat country.
We look forward to speaking with you,The Office of New Student and Family Programs
