U of M Family Connect Events

We believe parents and families play an important role in supporting their students as they transition to the University of Minnesota and so we hope you can join us for one of our U of M Family Connect Events next week.

By attending this free Gopher Family Connect evening event, you will learn more about the expectations of college, gain useful knowledge about important campus resources, and connect with other families new to the U of M community and current U of M students. It will include presentations and resources from a variety of campus resources including One Stop, Housing & Residential Life, Off Campus Housing, Multicultural Center for Academic Excellence, and more. Refreshments will be available.
