All Families Are Then Invited to:

11:30 am - Multi-cultural & First-Generation Parent Resource Group (4th floor, Milton Room)

During our session, you have an opportunity to meet parents from last year’s incoming class, meet our diverse faculty and learn more about how the Parents group supports one another and their students. In addition, the resource group provides advice and resources to multicultural and first-generation families to ensure their students can successfully navigate their college experience at the Whitman School of Management.

Parents and students are invited to tour the house dedicated to providing a space for students of color at 119 Euclid St. Please join us for a tour, lunch, and community building.

This is a great time to meet other families and students of color. A Syracuse University Trolley will be available to shuttle families to 119 Euclid St and back to the Whitman School. The Trolley will depart at 12:30 pm from the Whitman School at the corner of Marshall St. and University Avenue.
