Parents Resources

 The Colonel Transition

As a parent, you’re facing some pretty unnerving times. Your child is thumbing through college brochures, pondering the rest of his or her life. And you want to be right there—making sure your child is surrounded by an environment at least as supportive and nurturing as the home you’ve created. 

At Wilkes University, we get it. If there’s one word that sums up what we’re all about, it’s  “mentoring.” What does that mean? In a few words, we think your child will learn better when given personal, individual support and guidance. We play an active role in your child’s life—not because we’re paid to, but because we want to. We will do anything in our power to help our students succeed, and we’ll be there to help them learn from their mistakes when they don't.

As first year students learn how to “Be Colonel”, parents and families have opportunities to learn how to become Colonel through the “Colonel Transition Program”. This program gives insight to experiences that students encounter during their first year at Wilkes University. Watch as students, staff and faculty guide you through topics such as: Academic Support, Campus Life, Health and Wellness Services. Check back often for useful information that will keep you connected to the university.
