Student -parents use the Students With Children message board on FirstClass to keep in touch. Use this great resource for advice about local doctors, play areas, and neighborhoods.
Nontraditional Students Association
The Nontraditional Students Association is an organized student voice on campus for all non-traditional students, including students who are parents.
Family Room/ Lactation Space
Thanks to the efforts of a group of parents on campus, two rooms located on the first floor of Hannibal Hamlin Hall ( near Wells Conference Building ) have been made available for the use of parents and children. For moms who need to breastfeed or breast pump between classes, this space provides quiet, comfort, and privacy.
