Send Some Love

Your student may or may not admit it, but they are probably missing home in some way. Whether you carefully craft your own letter or care package or take advantage of one of our on-campus services, they will appreciate the gesture and will be happy to know you are thinking of them! An encouraging note from loved ones can go a long way, and you will gain bonus points for sending snacks or treats that can be shared with hallmates and friends.

First-Year Letters

If you didn't get the chance to fill out a "Letter from Home" during Orientation, email your letter to parents@up.edu by September 20. We’ll deliver it to your student by the end of September with the rest of the letters collected at Orientation. Feel free to utilize the online instructions and letter template.
