Just as our students need support and guidance in their transition to Albright, we know it can pose as many challenges for their families as well.  On Wednesday, August 11th and Thursday, August 12th, at 3pm each day, we will be hosting a Q&A opportunity in the Main Lounge of the student center just for families.  There will be members of the Albright community on hand to answer any questions you may have, point you to the resources available, and provide you with a parent guide to help you navigate this transition.

This is not a formal presentation, as you can come and go from 3-4pm, and stop by when it’s convenient for you!
