Penn Parents Publications

The Penn Parents Magazine is published bi-annually and is sent to current undergraduate parents in the fall and spring semesters. The magazine provides parents with information on campus news, faculty, parent volunteers, current students, and alumni. The magazine also provides information on opportunities for parents to engage on campus.

Each month during the academic year, our office sends an E-Newsletter to all current parents. In the newsletter, parents will find information about campus resources and departments, reminders of upcoming events and deadlines, and student life highlights.
