Three Tips for Parents for the New Academic Year

You are here

Greetings from Kansas Wesleyan!

As we head into Labor Day Weekend, it seems like a good time for an update from campus. 

The second week of the new year is already coming to an end and it has been a wonderful two weeks. Students have become accustomed to the routine of college life with classes, practices, work, homework, socializing, and rest. On campus, we’ve hosted a Discovery Fair to help students get to know about campus clubs and community churches; a Meet the Merchants event where local retailers encouraged students to patron their stores or look for part-time work; two Lunch Time Live events with live music on the SAC patio and great meals from Sodexo.

 Some students might head home for the long weekend. Others will have games, practices, and/or rehearsals. There are lots of athletic events to attend on campus, plus tonight comedian Aaron Kominos will appear in Sams Chapel. All free events for students! Plus, this weekend will be a good time to rest. Your student is likely tired. The weather should be nice for some leisure time in the campus hammocks or hanging out in the Adirondack chairs in the Outdoor Living Room listening to music on the outdoor speakers. This weekend will also be a good time to catch up on some homework or to get ahead.

 My family and I are headed to Fort Worth to watch the opening football game. If you are in the area or available, join us for a tailgate at 5 p.m. with kick off at 7 p.m. We expect a number of alumni and families to join us for this Texas-based game.

 If there is anything we can do to be of assistance to you or your student, please let us know.


All the best,
