Parents & Families

We understand the vital role parents play in the college experience, and we want to partner with you to support your child’s success.


While our primary communication will always be with your student, we want you to know that you are an essential part of the Hood community as well. It is important that you be kept up to date about campus events and activities and that you have a place to explore all of the campus resources available to you and your student. As a ’00 Hood graduate and the director of admission, I am pleased to serve as the primary resource for you as you learn more about Hood. I look forward to working with you and showing you all that is so precious about Hood - please contact me at with your questions, concerns, or a friendly hello. Welcome to the Hood College community!
