Home > Current Students > Residence Life > Parent's GuideDear Rockford College Families,
We are pleased that your student has chosen to live on our campus! Living in a residence hall provides several opportunities for growth and development outside of the classroom. We know that you are placing a great deal of trust in us to provide these opportunities for your student while they are living with us. Their safety and experiences in our residence halls are very important and we make it our goal to provide them with the very best in programs and services while they are living under our roof!
As we welcome them into our community, they will be treated as adults who have chosen to live with their fellow students. We will work with them as they navigate the uncertain waters of being "on their own.” It is our desire to provide them with the opportunity to spread their wings and take on full responsibility for their future. Therefore, we recognize the important role that families play in helping us help your student.
The residence life team at Rockford College seeks to develop a strong partnership with our residents' families. We know that your student is going to come to you with questions regarding roommate conflicts, classes, feelings of being homesick, and possibly even some discipline issues. It is our hope that you will review our Web site with your student as we hope that many questions can be answered here. If you cannot find the answer that your student has, we encourage you to send them to the appropriate person on-campus to assist them in finding and understanding the answers. We also hope that you will look over the resources provided on this page that we designed specifically for you!
We look forward to working with and getting to know your student!! We hope to see you at Family Weekend!
