Dear Emporia State Parents,
I am extremely pleased to welcome you to the Emporia State University family. Knowing that you and your student had several institutions to choose from; I am delighted and excited that you chose Emporia State as the place to continue your student's education!
This is an exciting time in both yours and your student's growth. I can assure you that while your student may not realize it, you will continue to play an important part in their academic success while attending Emporia State. Within the Division of Student Affairs, we provide programs and services that foster success academically and beyond.
The transition to university life, for students and parents, is exciting! It is my hope that this calendar will provide you with helpful information regarding transitions, important dates, campus events, and programs to support your student. Working together we will create amazing memories for your student.
Finally, there are three requests I will make of your students during their time at Emporia State:
This is an exciting time not only in the lives of our students but on the Emporia State University campus. I am honored to challenge and support your students in their learning and growth.
As such I look forward to working with you over the next few years!
Jim Williams, Ph.D.
Vice President for Student Affairs
