welcome from the PARENT and Family Programs COORDINATOR
Dear Binghamton University parents and families,
On behalf of the Binghamton University community, welcome to the Bearcat family! As coordinator of Parent and Family Programs, my goal is to offer you consistent and updated communication, provide support and enhance your relationship with the University. This is a time of transition and discovery for you and your student, and we believe an informed and supportive family is one of the best resources a student can have.
As a fellow Bearcat, I am fortunate to understand your students' experiences from an inside perspective. I received a bachelor's degree in comparative literature in 2010 and a master's degree in student affairs administration in 2011. As a student at Binghamton, I had many wonderful experiences -- being a resident assistant, showing off the school as a tour guide and cheering on our Bearcats as a member of the Dance Team. The best part of the experience, however, was sharing everything with my parents, both of whom happen to be alumni as well. As parents and family members, you are an integral part of this University and your student's new experiences.
Watch for details about the new Bearcats Family Association to receive additional involvement opportunities, discounts and information tailored to you and your student. We hope you will find this website to be your single source for event information, monthly updates, advice and more.
If you have any questions, suggestions, comments or stories you would like to share, please contact me at any time.
Parent and Family Programs Coordinator
