Dear Chico State Parents and Family Members:
On behalf of the Chico State Parent Advisory Council, I welcome you to Chico State. We are proud to have an active council in which parents can participate and contribute to the education, health, and safety of Chico State students.
The Parent Advisory Council was started in fall 2007, and has made a real impact on campus. Just one example of this is parent involvement in the Ready, Set, Chico events held throughout the State in August of each year (check the calendar for the 2012 dates and locations). Ready, Set, Chico events bring together parents, students, and alumni of the University to celebrate the decision of students to attend Chico State. Parents residing in the locations of these events work very hard to organize the events and arrange the venue and food. These events are incredibly upbeat and fun! Alumni are energized by their contact with the University through their interactions with new students. Parents are calmed by the knowledge that Chico State is a wonderful place that has a reputation for turning out great people.
The Parent Advisory Council holds two meeting per year; one meeting is held in October (Saturday, October 6, 2012) in conjunction with the Chico Experience Week (October 7-16, 2011), and one is held the last weekend in February. Parent Advisory Council members are responsible for helping out at two campus events per year; events include Ready, Set, Chico events, Wildcat Welcome Week events (the fall new student orientation), and Chico Experience Week. Helping out generally means being on hand to meet and greet other parents, letting parents know about the Parent Advisory Council, and helping them find answers to their questions.
The University is working hard to provide the tools necessary to ensure student success, and we all realize that parents are an important part of the education process for students. I invite you to put your energy to work for not only your son or daughter, but for all Chico State students. For more information on how you can become a part of the Parent Advisory Council, please contact the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations. I look forward to hearing from you!
