Welcome to the F&Mily!
You’ve heard over and over again that you have to be involved in your student's education, that your involvement is critical to his or her success. Then, one day, you drop your student off at college, and your role is suddenly less clear.
Here at F&M, we welcome you into our family and communicate with you on a regular basis. Given the trust you show in us by sending your children here, we want you to know what’s going on.

Ways to Get Involved
There is a reason our community is known as a F&Mily. We want parents and guardians to feel connected to this place that their student will call home for the next four years. There are lots of ways you can have an impact on your student and the institution:
Parents are among F&M's most loyal donors, but they are just as generous with their time. They volunteer to mentor students, come to campus to discuss the challenges and opportunities within their industries, and help us place F&M students in internships and jobs.Get Involved
