It’s the last Daily Deac before Move-In Day, and we want to welcome all our P’19s – parents and family members of the Class of 2019! We hope that you (or your students) will stop by the Parent Programs table at the Campus Services and Information Fair in the Benson University Center between 8 am-4 pm. Members of our office will be there all day to meet you, answer questions, and provide some value addeds (we hope).
First of all – stop by to see us to get your free Parents Are Deacs, Too! t-shirt (while supplies last). And bear with us here: because we want to give these to as many families who want a shirt, we’d ask that you take no more than 2 for your family. The pic at the right was badly snapped by me in a hurry, but these are really cute. And you can’t buy them anywhere – these are one of a kind. Come see us early if getting a shirt is a high priority for you. (And we hope you will wear it proudly – maybe even make it your staple on Black and Gold Friday, aka every Friday, as we hope you’ll wear Deac colors wherever you are).
While you are at the Parent Programs table, we will have cards with contact information from our office, so you know how to reach us if you need it. Also on that card is important information about what to do if there is an urgent situation that happens after hours or on weekends (it’s here online too) and you need to reach people on campus.
You can also stop at the table next to ours, run by our friends from Records, to check your Parent Record Form to make sure everything is correct. And if you have not provided an email address (or yours has changed), please provide an updated one at the Records table. Email is the way we reach parents for the vast majority of our news, helpful tips, etc.
Parent Programs and Records are just one stop in the Campus Services and Information Fair. Have fun browsing the other tables, picking up giveaways, and talking with representatives from other offices.
There will also be a satellite location with colleagues from our division, University Advancement. They’ll be in a tent on the Mag Quad (near the first year residence halls) and they will have one of the most precious commodities on Move-In Day – bottled water! (Again, while supplies last). There’ll be some posters and other goodies there, so stop by and say hello to them too.
We know Move-In is going to be a busy day for you and your Deacs. We hope it is a great one.
Come and see us in Benson, y’all!
