Parents

Being a parent to a college student can often come with many questions and challenges. The Office of Student Success encourages parents to have balanced involvement in their student’s college experience. This balance includes providing continual support while also letting the student utilize self-growth and personal responsibility as they navigate their college experience.

First-year college students in particular may tend to lean on their parents heavily during the beginning of college. As parents, we encourage you to be there for support while also encouraging your college student to utilize resources on and off campus to help them be successful.

If you have questions or concerns regarding your college student’s success, please contact Sidney Elder at smelder@indianatech.edu or 260-422-5561 ext. 3435.
