A Welcome to Parents from the Dean
Believing in the expression “he (or she) is a chip off the old block,” we know that you, as parents, have a lot to offer the University and look forward to getting to know you. Your son or daughter is about to embark on an amazing experience. I trust that together we can form a formidable partnership of support, so that your student benefits from all aspects of the experience. Please let us know when you have questions or concerns and we will – through proctors, peer advising fellows, teachers, advisers, and deans – keep challenging, raising options, and showing our abiding respect and confidence.
Thank you for entrusting your son or daughter to us. And congratulations on the role you have played in getting him or her to this exciting point.
Thomas A. Dingman
Dean of Freshmen
