Dear Temple Parents and Families,
Parents and Family Weekend is designed to allow you to reconnect with your student while taking in the sights, sounds, and recreational opportunities that Temple University and the city of Philadelphia have to offer. It is also a great time to experience first-hand what life is like on campus and off.
The Temple Parent and Family Program exists to partner with parents and families in order to ensure student success from enrollment to commencement. This is done by providing opportunities for parents and families to engage with their students, the University, faculty and staff, as well as other parents and family members.
Through education and sharing valuable resources and services available within the University community, we hope to develop partnerships, foster tradition, and enhance Temple pride that encourages students and their parents and family members to be invested members of our community.
Our program goals are to: • Serve as a central resource for parents and families and enhance strong partnerships for student success • Enhance parent and family involvement opportunities throughout the University community • Provide information about the student experience at Temple University • Foster tradition, pride, and investment in our community
We hope that the next few days offer you the opportunity to enjoy some quality time as a family. Staff members will be on hand for your assistance throughout the weekend. Please let any of our Owl Team Leaders know how we can make your visit more positive. On behalf of the university and our office, thank you for attending PFW 2016.
