FYC Parents as Partners

The First Year College (FYC) Parents as Partners Program gives parents opportunities to support and partner with the First Year College, and their student’s transition to College.  The Parents as Partners program provides newsletters to help parents stay informed, opportunities to share career related information, as well as meet other First Year College Parents and Families.
