University Parent is the single source of information for my daughter and I.  We love looking for discounts that we can use and the maps help us to get around an unfamiliar college town.

- Jeff W

UniversityParent’s resources really helped us anytime we needed information about events at the school and the city, especially since we live 300 miles from campus.

- Jo B

I was able to find a great hotel with friendly staff near campus when I visited my daughter. I was also able to celebrate birthdays with her from afar by sending cupcakes from a bakery I found on their website.

- Susan B

As a sales manager in our community, I think it is a great opportunity to partner with one of our universities. We need to work together to keep our community growing strong. As well, everyone I have been in contact with has been great to work with.

- Portia Kahn, Holiday Inn Orange County Airport

As a marketer, I advertise in 100+ sources. University Parent was the easiest to advertise in. The design specifications were clear and simple, and the online upload was just as easy. Eric Hosmer, Ad Coordinator, was detailed, and on-top of everything. I really appreciated the follow-up from him. I had a great experience advertising with you. Thank you!

- Courtney Fleishman, Marketing Specialist, HallKeen Management

I will be re-newing. I like what you guys offer and it’s working well for me. I have been tracking my marketing and am absolutely getting sign ups from advertising with you.

- Michael Shelhamer, Owner of College Student Storage

I just reviewed the web site that relates to the Gonzaga Parent Guide…your program is 1st class and it indeed helps my client generate tangible results. I wish you also did one of these programs for Eastern Washington University.

Anyway, thanks for all your help. I look forward to our ongoing participation with the Gonzaga Parent Guide.

- Bob Jappe, Holiday Inn Spokane Airport

I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful guides! We are in the midst of Family Weekend check-in and have had RAVE reviews from our parents!

- Tracy Clark- University of Nevada – Las Vegas

Angela what a great idea! I think it is fabulous. I certainly wish I had something like this when Matthew was in school. I think it saves parents having to go to their kids to get a resource or phone number. I think you have covered just about everything.

- Kathleen A., current staff member, The Boston Conservatory

We are so excited to receive the guide in the mail. It is very timely and informative. I wish that it existed last year when our son entered The Boston Conservatory. The format and the size is extremely easy to handle and to review.

- Norman and Richardean S., current parents from The Boston Conservatory

The University Parent Guide for CU Families has had the most positive return on investment of any print advertising we have explored. In fact, the advertisement that we ran paid for itself almost immediately. We will definitely advertise again.

- Passion Flower Design, Boulder CO

The personal touch and follow through from the staff of University Parent is exceptional. I know I can always call or email anyone in the office and have a prompt response. Their flexibility and willingness to design the guide and newsletter around our needs has made our partnership with them a pleasure.

- Bill Dlugokienski, Dominican University

Our e-newsletter, Parent Connection, highlights student accomplishments, campus resources and events, ways in which parents can support their student, and opportunities for parents to share their opinion. Parents are grateful to receive regular updates and information (especially because their students may not always pass this information along to them!). They are continually visiting our website and signing up for the Parent Connection. This has been an effective way to disseminate information while letting parents know we truly care about them!

- Kendra Miller, Johnson & Wales University – Charlotte

Response to the guide has been so good, we are looking at doing an admissions recruiting guide and the parent electronic newsletters with University Parent Media. I have heard from parents who read the articles, but most parents are using the guide for easy access to date and contact information. The guide has proven to be a critical tool for our campus in the process of getting information to parents.

- Polly Crabtree, Associate Director, Alumni and Parent Relations

University Parent Media provides a quality product that our parents and family members really use and enjoy. Our parents tell us that they keep a copy in their car for quick reference during visits to the campus. They like knowing about campus news and resources as well as dining, lodging and area attractions, through a publication designed just for them.

- Emily Lehning, Assistant Dean of Student Life/Coordinator of New Student Programs, Kansas State University

The parent guide has been an extremely useful resource for parents. During orientation I specifically refer to the area restaurant pages to show options for dinner.. I am proud to talk about the parent programs at IIT and I use the Parent Guide as tangible evidence to the success of our program. Parents feel like they belong to an institution organized enough to create a guide specifically for parents and we have more time to create welcoming programs for our families. IIT has a large international population so this guide has also been very useful in their transition.
