Welcome to Terp Parent
As the leaves continue to change and the cooler weather settles on campus, we are reminded that the Fall semester is halfway through and Thanksgiving break is right around the corner. When you talk with your student about academic progress, campus organizations they may have joined, registering for Spring semester classes, and the many aspects of college life, be sure to include alcohol use as part of your conversation.
Are you curious about your first-year student’s academic progress? Your student should be able to share information with you soon. All freshman students receive Early Warning Grades to provide a mid-term assessment of their academic progress and are good indicators of your student's performance. The grades are normally reported by the tenth week of class and can be accessed online.
Each year thousands of Terps and hundreds of employers collide at the largest career and internship fair of the year. The Fall Career & Internship Fair hosts recruiters from a vast array of organizations looking to hire for full, part-time, internship and co-op positions in both tech and non-tech industries. With such a huge turnout of intelligent, ambitious and talented Terps, how can your Terp stand apart from the rest?
Most universities schedule orientations for both first-time college students and parents to help them cope with the changes and demands of the freshman experience. However, the reality is that a child's departure to college affects all members of the family system--not only the student who is leaving and the parents who are letting them go--but also the siblings left behind.
