Welcome to the Fall 2017 edition of the MU Parent Connection! Our desire is to keep you connected with happenings on campus and give you opportunities to participate in your student’s experience at Multnomah. Your students are important to all of us here at MU, so we pray with expectancy that they continue to experience God in new and fresh ways as we launch into a new school year.
A special welcome to all our new parents who are beginning this journey with their freshman MU student!
Dear Parents, In 1971 I entered college as a young, impressionable freshman as the first person in my family to attend college. It cost me approximately $6,000 annually for tuition, room, and board. Have things changed or what?
CULTURE OF LEARNING
Hello! My name is Natalie Correll, and I serve as the university’s Director of Alumni & Parent Relations. I had the priviledge of meeting many of you at our New Student Orientation last month. It is a joy to partner with you, either as a veteran, experienced MU parent or as a new MU parent, to collectively create a culture of learning within our MU community. I look forward to connecting with you soon here on campus or at our upcoming Blazer Parent & Student Night Out!
WORKING THROUGH THE BIG TRANSITION | HOW TO MU PARENT
I have gone from being a daughter, college student, teacher, missionary, graduate student, counselor and Dean of Women. Each of us has a unique journey, but there is one thing that is certain for all of us – we will face change and transition in our lives.
