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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
Responses regarding The Boston Conservatory Parent Guide have been nothing but positive! All of our parents love having the guide as a resource and it couldn’t have been easier to produce. University Parent Media was extremely helpful and pleasant every step of the way.
University Parent has been a great partner in our parent publications. I sent the content and images and they created a professional and comprehensive guide for the parents of our students. Being a small institution, we would not have had the time or resources to create such a wonderful publication.
I am thrilled with the way the Tufts guide turned out and I’m sure our parents will be happy to receive it in their orientation packets this summer. It is chock-full of important information, from university phone numbers and contact information to where to stay in the area. The staff at UPM were helpful, patient, and professional, a delight to work with.
University Parent Media has made it possible for me to supply our parent/family population with a quality e-newsletter. I wanted to provide regular updates to parents and families, but didn’t have the technological ability to put the content in an appealing format. University Parent Media has been great to work with, even considering the specific needs of my institution and customizing the e-newsletter to meet our needs. The staff has always been so courteous, friendly, and prompt in their assistance. Because of the quality work supplied by University Parent Media, I’m able to proudly offer parents and families an e-newsletter with interactive links.
I just want to thank you for this publication. The response has been wonderful from the parents. They love the guide.
