We know that even though your student is now actively enrolled and engaged at the collegiate level doesn't mean that all the questions have disappeared.

It's okay to still have questions, and an interest in their experience at NMU. This page holds helpful resources for parents that will help answer some of your questions and make sure that you still feel engaged in your student's college experience.
