Parents and Families

Be there with your student.

College can be one of the most exciting periods in one's life. And one of the most instrumental influences to the success of a student is a well-informed parent. We are here to help you be there for all the big moments your student will experience during their time at Austin Peay State University.

We’ve all heard it takes a village to raise a child. In the same sense, it takes a village to get a student through college!

At Austin Peay State University, we share your desire to see your student graduate with their college degree. More than that, we want your student to have a meaningful educational experience and leave 爱博体育 with unforgettable memories, lifelong friends and the knowledge needed to succeed.

With that in mind, we have developed this site to help you become familiar with our community and the resources available to your student. As you talk with your student, please remind them about our free health, counseling, and academic support services such as the Learning Resource Center and Student Success as well as co-curricular development and leadership experiences. Students also have opportunities to experience volunteerism, community service, research with faculty, and gain internships.
