Students’ families to meet over breakfast at Arizona State’s Tempe campus

July 24, 2013 by  

Parents and families of students who are preparing to begin their first year at Arizona State University in Tempe are invited to attend an informative meeting before the onset of the fall semester.

In approximately three weeks’ time, staff members from the school’s Sun Devil Family Association will be holding a special breakfast forum in the ASU Foundation Building. Flyer printing is more than likely on the rise as the morning of the event draws nearer.

Attendees will enjoy bagels and coffee as guest speakers discuss how freshmen can benefit from living on campus and how their families can get involved in activities at Arizona State. There will be particular emphasis on the series of welcome events that are set to take place later in August, when the university’s dormitories will open and fall classes will begin.

Parents will also learn about the resources that will be available to their children on campus. These include career counseling and general guidance about making a successful transition into life away from home.

The Sun Devil Family Association aims to make students’ families feel connected to the Arizona State community. Parents are encouraged to join this organization, volunteer at its fundraisers and other functions, and donate to it if possible.

The breakfast is scheduled for Saturday, August 10 at 9:30 am. Incoming students, whose courses will commence on August 22, will be welcome to attend if they wish.

There will be no charge for the event. Interested parties may RSVP by calling (480) 965-7625.
