The families of our students play an important role in the HWS community. The Office of Parent Programs supports special family programming for events including new student Orientation in August, Homecoming and Family Weekend in September, and Commencement in May.
These parent webpages will help direct you to the various offices on campus that can assist you and answer questions. In addition, on this site we will post events of interest to parents throughout the year. You can also stay connected by joining the HWS Parents and Families Group on Facebook.
If I can assist you in any way, please contact me.
