Dear Parents,

Please click on the headline links to read the complete articles.  

Also, don't miss the link to our Parents' Poll.  We are really looking for your input on these issues!

In this edition along with our “Career Connections” article, you will find news from our vice president for Student Affairs, Kathy Woughter, on the new APEX Program, an article from a past president of the Parent’s Association, our “Parent’s as Partner’s” statement, Bookstore information, news from Residence Life and AU Fresh (Dining Services), as well as an article from Norm Pollard, Dean of Students, and an update from Athletics.  We also have included a “Did you know” article that we hope to continue through each edition and as we did with our last edition, we are including a parent poll where we will ask you to respond (not required) to a question or two that will help provide us with feedback on a topic related to AU, your student and you.  Click here to respond to the poll; we will share the results in our next edition.
