At Alvernia, we believe informed and supportive parents/guardians play a key role in a student's educational achievements. For that reason, we want to help you participate in your student's experience at Alvernia by providing opportunities and resources to make it easy for you to stay engaged. Our goal is to make the Alvernia experience as positive for you as it is for your student.

On a daily basis, you can help raise the University’s visibility and presence within your community. At your job, your place of worship or with friends and family, you can be a real ambassador for Alvernia just by sharing your student’s experience with others. Parents and family are important partners in our efforts to provide students with everything they need to learn, grow and fulfill their passion.

As you commence on this journey, there will be many opportunities for you to be engaged. Below is just a sampling of some of the ways you can get involved.

  • Accepted Students Day

  • Support the Admissions Team at College Fairs or Open Houses

  • Connections

  • Host Welcome to Alvernia Receptions (Summer Send-Offs)

  • Host regional networking events in your area -

  • Offer assistance in Career Development (career experience, career mentoring, networking, internship and externship opportunities).

We welcome and look forward to your involvement.  If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at parents@alvernia.edu
