What’s been the best part of being a member of the program?

To be part of the San Francisco parents and share our experience and help each other.
- Alicia V., SF State Parent


The program helps keep parents informed, without doing the helicopter thing!"
-Fran P., SF State Parent)


The best part of participating in this program is the opportunity to give honest, open answers to parents and easing their minds about their child coming to an urban campus.
Mary O., SF State Parent


What would you tell a parent who is thinking about joining the program?

The Parent and Family Program has been a one stop shop in answering the questions I had, and have, about my daughter’s college experience.  I was able to give back by volunteering at the Southern California Pre-Admissions Reception in San Diego, providing answers, for other parents, to those same questions I had the year before.  It is never easy sending your child away to college for the first time, but the program has certainly taken a lot of the mystery and stress out of a large portion of it.
- Lynnda S., SF State Parent

With our children attending such a fine institution as SF State, we as parents getting an opportunity to contribute and further SF State’s mission by joining this program could be that missing link between success and failure of our children.  SF State needs our help to help the students.
- Pam P., SF State Parent
