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 25th at 1pm each day, we will be hosting a panel in the Chapel 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 family guide to help you navigate this transition.
