Information for Parents

Be informed and stay current with your student's college experience. Staying involved with your student, and knowing what they are doing on campus can contribute to their best college experience. Visit Rowan's Parents & Family website for upcoming events and additional information.

Protecting your student from the Flu:
Most Healthy adults may be able to infect others with the flu beginning 1 day before symptoms develop. College students are consistently in large group settings and can benefit greatly from getting a yearly flu shot. Help keep your student healthy and in classes this flu season by encouraging them to their flu shot and practice good hygiene. Flu shots are available at the Student Health Services by appointment.
