Welcome First-Year Families
First things first. As JMU welcomes your sons and daughters, the university extends the same warm invitation to you as parents. Keep your Madison Family Handbook handy throughout this journey. This handbook contains valuable information with which you can coach your student as well as the resources that you may need. The Academic Calendar will help you plan around your student's breaks and keep you up to date. Get connected with the JMU Parents Facebook page where you can stay in the loop with important information.
First-Year Send Offs. Come join the excitement as we congratulate and welcome our newest Dukes! View information for 2016 Send Offs here.
Family Weekend. Family Weekend 2016 will take place September 30-October 2. Attending Family Weekend provides a wonderful chance for you to spend quality time with your student. Information about Family Weekend can be found here.
Enjoy the journey! This is an exciting time for your entire family. If you need any assistance, advice, or are looking for a little support, JMU's Office of Parent Relations is here for you.
