Resources for Parents and Families
Welcome to UC Santa Cruz. The college journey is an exciting and challenging time in the lives of students and their families. Your student will grow in ways beyond measure, and their experience at UCSC will leave an indelible mark on their personal development. We value the partnership with parents and other family members get involved and stay informed. (Pictured at right: Alumna Sarah Davis-Weyman and her mother, Terry Davis)
