Watch our latest edition of our webinar series hosted by Stephanie Ray, Associate Dean of Students and Director of Student Diversity Programs. You will learn about different strategies and tips to help your student develop resiliency, self-advocacy and how to identify the resources in place to help them be successful.


Our most up to date version of the Parent & Family Calendar/Handbook for 2022-2023 is available to download and print. It is also available for purchase.

This GT spirited wall calendar highlights information, shares campus resources, provides important dates, discusses common student experiences, contains great tips for families and offers helpful resources for you and your student.

If you are new family, you will receive a copy if you attend an in-person FASET Parent Orientation session as your guest registration fee covers the cost - one copy per family. Parents who are not attending in-person, can purchase a calendar to be mailed to them.
