Welcome Families!

We are delighted to welcome you to the IUPUI Jaguar Family! The years of your student’s college career will be rewarding, challenging, and memorable. As parents, family members, and supporters we realize you will walk alongside them during these years that will change their lives. We recognize you may have questions about the journey your student is embarking on at IUPUI, and we are here to help.

Incoming Parents and Families 

Just like your student, you are now a part of our IUPUI community! Bridge is your student's official welcome to IUPUI - it's a great way for them to meet people, get questions answered, and adjust to college before classes even start. This year, we are offering a program just for you, Bridge Week for Families

Even though I didn’t know what to expect from my daughter’s college experience, I learned I could still be a support by doing things like sending care packages or just being there to listen.
