We know you want to support your student and you might not always know what resources are available or where your student can turn to get some additional help. Over the summer Engineering First Year Experience offers the following opportunties for new Engineering Buff Families to connect with College faculty and staff, learn about resources, and ask questions. If you have questions or have suggestions for other resources to include here, please feel free to reach out to Maura Hollister, Assistant Director, First Year Experience at Maura.Hollister@colorado.edu

Engineering Buff Family Summer Info Session Series:

These Zoom webinars are intended to provide general information about what your student can expect this summer. We will review important college resources, placement test requirements, enrollment and advising processes, and answer live questions from attendees. This is a listening session with opportunity for a live Q&A at the end, no active participation is required in the session.  


Engineering Buff Family Virtual Summer Coffee Hour Series:

These sessions are limited to 50 participants and are a way to informally connect with some faculty and staff in the College of Engineering. We will share some general information in the beginning but this time will be devoted to making connections rather than reviewing move in logistics or answering questions about enrollment. Space is limited in each section, if the registration is blank from one of the links below that means the session is full.

Engineering Support Resources for Families 

We find that new students often experience an adjustment period when they start classes in the College of Engineering. Is your student struggling in a particular class or do they need help developing new learning and study strategies? Do they need help connecting with other students or connection with one of our embedded councilors? You can find those resources and more in the following links!
