PARENTS SURVIVAL GUIDE 2019

Resources for keeping up with your student You’ve packed up the car, made three extra trips to Target to pick up things you forgot and fruitlessly organized a dorm room that will be messy again within the week. Now you’re standing outside your kid’s new home and hugging them tightly one last time before you make your way back home. They promised they would call every weekend, and sometimes they do, but the conversations usually consist of, “Can I have a few bucks for groceries?” or “I forgot my basketball shoes at home, could you send them?" It’s not always easy keeping up with your college student, but there are resources available to help you stay connected to the IU community from afar. Here are a few different ways parents can keep track of student and university life in Bloomington.

Family Weekend What better way to keep up with your kid than by actually visiting him or her? IU has a family weekend every year, and for 2018 it’s Sept. 20-22. Plan your visit now by reserving a hotel room (they go quickly) and buying extra tickets to that weekend’s home football game against Connecticut.

IU Notify Sometimes bad things happen. Whether it’s a tornado warning or an assault near campus, be in the know with IU Notify. Just go to one. iu.edu and search for IU Notify to sign up. Students can also opt in for these notifications to be sent via phone calls or text messages.

The easiest way to keep up with both people and places these days is through social media.

The Division of Student Affairs has a Parents Association to act as a bridge between you and life at IU. At the end of orientation your student should have enrolled you (or his or her other parent or guardian) as a member. If you’re not a member, you can sign up for the IU Family Connection newsletter at https://provost.indiana.edu/parentresources/newsletter/index.html.
