Parent/Family Student Support Interest Survey

A couple of weeks ago, we hosted an evening "virtual conversation" event with some of our Chicago area families who have students starting at WMU in the fall. The topic, "Transition without Tears or Fears" focused on questions and concerns regarding the family/student transition from high school to college. Parents and family members accessed the conversation from the comfort of their own homes via their computers and/or telephones.

We received very positive positive feedback from our participants about the conversation and would like to offer this opportunity more widely to families of incoming students and families of current students. The purpose of this short survey is to inquire about your interest in future conversations and what topics you would like to discuss.


Which of the following topics would encourage you to participate in a virtual conversation? Select all that apply.

To gain general information about the transition from high school to college
To get specific questions answered
To network with other families in my area
To help ease my apprehensions about the upcoming transition
To learn more about WMU's resources and services
