ParentNet transition is complete

Welcome to the new ParentNet!

Members of our campus community will share information about campus happenings, reminders about important dates, events and deadlines, and transitions your students may be experiencing throughout each semester. Additionally, our student writers will be sharing their own stories with you.  Our goal is to keep you informed of campus news and events and to let you know what you and your students should be thinking about.

We invite you to join the Michigan Tech Parents Facebook group. Parents actively engage in various discussion topics, post questions for one other, and share stories about their students. Participate in the conversation on Facebook.

Preparing new students for the fall semester

Summer is a great time to prepare for the 2016-2017 academic year.  If you are the parent or guardian of an incoming first-year student, begin preparing now for their arrival to Tech. It is important to start conversations early about college expectations.  In addition, all the physical preparation – the shopping, packing, and goodbyes – will be here before you know it.  Doing a little at a time is helpful so neither you nor your student gets overwhelmed with all of the last-minute work before Orientation.  Reviewing the What to Bring page will provide you with a list of things to bring and other helpful hints as you prepare for the move to campus.
