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 Thursday, August 24th at 1pm, we will be hosting a meet and greet in the Student Center just for family members while your students begin their orientation sessions.  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 family guide to help you navigate this transition.
