Information for Families

Entering college is a significant step toward independence and maturity for your student. We are well aware of the emotional impact this step will have on both you and your student. Students report that input from their parents is one of the most significant influences on the decisions they make when they come to Lyndon. Informed parents can and do influence the success of their children when they attend college. The more you know about the academic resources and services available to your student, the better prepared you will be to ask the right questions or provide the most helpful answers in the future. Therefore, we strongly encourage parents of both first-time freshmen and new transfer students to attend a SOAR session and get involved in the Lyndon community.

SOAR

Don’t let your your child fool you! The SOAR program isn’t just for students. Parents are highly encouraged to participate in a SOAR program specifically designed to meet the parents’ needs.
