Reasons to Join

Top 10 Reasons to Join the University of Hartford Parents' Association

10. Get firsthand information on topics of interest in the University of Hartford community. Learn the ins and outs of room selection, or get information on topics such as financial aid or what’s going on with campus security.

9. Spend close to $250,000 of someone else’s money. Be part of the allocations committee, which chooses the campus projects that we, as parents, feel are important and should be funded.

8. Meet and talk with key administrative figures. Each meeting features a guest speaker. Every year, President Walter Harrison speaks and fields questions at our year-end meeting in April.

7. Meet other parents whose students have already faced some of the same challenges your son or daughter may be having. Whether this is your first child going to college or your fifth, there’s always something new to learn or share.

6. Enjoy great social gatherings. See a performance at The Hartt School or cheer on the Hawks at a sporting event.

5. Be part of the campus community. Meetings are held in different buildings on campus. In the past we have met in the new Handel Performing Arts Center, Hawk Hall, and the campus TV station.

4. Take advantage of a great opportunity to spend a Sunday on campus and drop in on your son or daughter.

3. Discover the convenience of online meetings. If you can’t make it to campus, watch our meetings online.

2. Savor our great food for on-site guests. It’s definitely not what the students get!

1. You don’t have to do anything. If you are the parent of a University of Hartford student, you’re already a member.
