Latest eNews: Spring 2014
Parents & Family Member Letter


Dear Fellow SF State Parents & Family Members,

On behalf of the Parents & Family Council, I am pleased to be able to present you with the Spring 2014 edition of the SF State Parents & Family Program eNews. It is our hope that this newsletter helps fulfill a key goal of the SF State Parents Council, which is to provide parents and families with informative campus updates.

I am also pleased to let you know that SF State has recently hired a full-time staff member to oversee the Parents & Family Program, Ryan Jones. Ryan and I have been working together to strengthen the foundation of this ermerging program and know together we can build a robust resource and one that will enrich the SF State experience for all. In doing so, I hope you will take a moment to reply to a brief survey by clicking here, letting us know your thoughts and hopes for the future of the Parents & Family Program.

They say it takes a village to raise a child. Perhaps it also takes a village to raise a university. As a parent of a junior, and the founding president of the SF State Parents & Family Council, I encourage you to become involved in your child’s college experience and help us shape a bright future for the Gators of the University.


Janice Herwegh Gumas '85
President, SF State Parents & Family Council
