Cristina Buzas, New Student Orientation Manager at Washtenaw Community College, joins Higher Ed Live to discuss Washtenaw’s Parents First-Year Experience project. Each year, the college welcomes parents of first-year students with a series of events and offerings, including a parent-specific orientation, webinars, newsletters, and continuos online communication.
With parents playing a crucial role not only in college selection but success as well, Washtenaw’s efforts are an example the industry should take note of.
