When students enroll in college, parents and families may feel both excited and nervous. The academic challenges, new connections, and development of interests and strengths are an incredible opportunity, and families are also wondering about university housing, food, campus safety, career opportunities and financing this educational experience.

Student and his parents


This site is a resource for parents and families of our students -- a place where you can gather information about how things work at Southern and who to contact if you need to learn more. We're glad your child has chosen Southern and will help make his or her transition to college life as smooth as possible. Welcome to the Southern family!
