ZSRx Parents and Families: Deacon Development 101

Parents and families are invited to join us for a four-week, free online course for parents and families of Wake Forest students. This course seeks to bring participants to a fuller understanding of how this generation experiences their college years. The course will explore how parents can help their students develop crucial skills like resilience and self-advocacy, and how students might develop greater awareness of their own identities. Interact with student development experts on campus and hear from student support representatives as you learn about how students can reach their potential and find their niche on campus. Add your email now to be alerted about when registration will begin in late September.

If Your Student Has a Problem

One of the most important ways parents and families can help their students in college is by encouraging them to solve their own problems. Please bookmark or print out this Stop, Drop, and Roll flyer so you have it when your student contacts you with a problem.  Also, the flyer lists contact information for urgent and serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
