Parents and Student

Welcome to the Sprog Parent Orientation Website.

We are delighted to have you as the newest members of our Southwestern community. This site includes information relevant to your student’s transition to Southwestern. We know that this can be both an exciting and stressful time for you and your student. We hope to make the process smooth and enjoyable.

Throughout the summer you will receive communications from Southwestern with information regarding your student’s transition to college, including the updated Families Magazine . If you are unsure if the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations has your current mailing and email address you may complete the Parent Info Form here .

This summer, you and your student will have a two-day Sprog experience, which will include informational sessions, interactions with other students and parents, and critical advising and registration sessions. 

We look forward to engaging with you  this summer!
