Parent Resources

We all want our children to be successful in life.

College is the time for your student to learn what it means to be a responsible individual and make their own choices.

For more information, please review the following:

Student Health 101

Student Health 101, an interactive online magazine, engages your student in living healthfully and developing skills needed for succeeding in school and beyond.  The Parent Perspective provides a quick-to-read summary of articles designed to help you support your student through the growth and challenges he or she faces.  We also invite you to read the full student magazine, which includes features such as videos and stories from students, reader-submitted recipes and exercise tips, and resources for you and your student.

Responsible Drinking

The Century Council is a leader in the fight against drunk driving and underage drinking and promotes responsible decision making regarding beverage alcohol.  They believe that collective action brings about lasting change. They work with all members of the community – law enforcement, public officials, educators, parents, and students – in the fight against drunk driving and underage drinking.   Helpful resources for parents include:  “Parents, You’re Not Done Yet.” and “ #TALKEARLY about alcohol.”

Building upon a longstanding history of corporate social responsibility and recognizing the power of collective action, the distilled spirits industry created The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility in 1991 as an independent, national, not-for-profit organization.Their mission is to fight drunk driving and underage drinking and to promote responsible decision making regarding beverage alcohol. Their funding companies do not want their products to be misused or consumed illegally.

Students who would like to make an appointment at the Counseling Center should come to our office to complete a confidential information form. We are located in the Human Resources Building, Room 64, Phone: (217) 206-7122.
