Parents and Families at Capital
At Capital, we view parents and family members as important members of our students’ teams. We know you will be right there helping solve problems, cheering them on, and challenging them to learn new things, both inside and outside the classroom. You are bound to have questions. About resources your student might need. About how to parent a college student. About the Capital community and where your child will fit in.
We want to put your mind at ease by providing you with as much information as we can, and by connecting you with a network of people on campus who can give you the insider tips. If you cannot find what you are looking for, please do not hesitate to give us a call or email us at email@example.com. After all, you’ll be part of the Capital Family too.
