Family members are encouraged to help their students get settled into their new living spaces, and perhaps make a trip to the store to pick up any last minute items or grab a bite to eat. After that, it’s time to say good-bye. Families, you can leave campus knowing that University and On Iowa! staff are working hard to support your students as they make the transition to college life.
There are two sets of workshops in which families are welcome and encourage to attend:
