You want your children to enjoy college.
You want them to explore, reflect, discover, transform, and build enduring values. You want them to have an experience that they will never forget.
But you worry.Will they receive a high-quality education? How will they handle their newly-acquired independence? Will they be safe? Where will they live? What will they eat?
At UNK, we understand that as parents of college-bound students, you have your own set of challenges and concerns to deal with.
This is why we make it easy for you to participate in your child’s university experience.
