Tips for Parents

A guide for parents to help families navigate their student's first semester at Husson

The summer before college.

Be prepared to see less of your student this summer. They’ll likely be spending every waking hour with friends. Consider allowing them this special time together.

The emotional roller coaster.

Recognize this may be a time of ambivalence for you: excitement about opportunities awaiting your student mixed with a sense of loss. Seek out support from other parents going through the same thing. Consider joining the “Official Husson University Family Group” on Facebook to connect with families of both new and current Husson students.


Busy college students keep in touch in a variety of ways. Consider using WhatsApp or texting for quick communication. Remember, this is the time to let go a bit, so resist the urge to keep in constant contact. Of course, students always appreciate an old-fashioned letter or care package from home!
