Parents and Families

Parents & Families

Welcome to Gardner-Webb University!


Transitioning to college can be stressful – both for students and for parents.


As a parent or family member, you play a unique role in the life of your RUNNIN’ BULLDOG. Parents are a very important part of the university family and integral to students’ success. We encourage you to be involved by:


  • Attending Family Weekend: September 11-13, 2015
  • Sending care packages to your student
  • Opting in for Emergency Text messaging to obtain urgent alerts
  • Downloading the Gardner-Webb University Student Life app (from your app store) to keep informed of student events and activities happening on campus. 

We look forward to getting to know you and invite you to please complete the Family Information Form, located under the RESOURCE link to the left of the page. Also located on the resource link, you will find information to assist you in planning your visit to campus, being part of your student college career and preparing for Family Weekend.
