Support your student…

Surprise your student with a letter, an e-mail or phone call. Show interest in his or her co-curricular activities. Offer special encouragement at mid-term and exam times.

Stay informed…

Find out what academic courses your student is taking. Ask about professors, friends and roommates. Read letters, newsletters and magazines sent by the College. Talk to other families. Attend Family Council meetings.

Attend campus events…

Save weekend dates for Family Orientation, Family Weekend and Homecoming. Watch for announcements about athletic competitions, concerts, lecture series, recitals and theatre productions taking place on campus and encourage your student to attend.

Participate in the Family fund-drive…

Each year, the Family Annual Fund Drive raises money to support areas such as the Library, various academic programs, MC athletics and much more. Family participation is key to the success of your child’s school. A high level of family participation allows MC to compete for larger grants from foundations and corporations. Each year, MC students and family volunteers make phone calls to other MC families as part of the Annual Family Phonathon. You can support the Family Fund Drive by making a gift or pledge when you receive a call. Your gift, no matter the size, goes a long way in supporting MC students.
