Resources for Parents and Families

Discover a university that will challenge your student and support them on the path to success.

Selecting a college is one of the most important choices your student will make, but they won’t make the decision alone. We know that parents and families play a vital role in this process, and we want to ensure that you have the information you need to help your child navigate the college search, narrow down choices, and make deadlines.

The «Ƶ;Verne Experience

We are an institution that goes beyond the process of granting degrees. Founded in 1891 and grounded in the liberal arts, the «Ƶ;Verne is a nonprofit, private university committed to supporting our students as they pursue their passions, grow personally, and prepare for a lifetime of success. Your student has the potential to do great things, and it’s the goal of our faculty and staff to nurture their ambition and talents to achieve more than they could imagine.
