Parents & Families

Welcome to Gardner-Webb!


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 Running Bulldawg. 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 19, 2014 - September 21, 2014
  • Sending care packages to your student
  • Opting in for Emergency Text messaging to obtain urgent alerts


We look forward to getting to know you and invite you to please complete the Family Information Form if you have not done so already.


Below are other resources to assist you in planning your visit to campus, being part in your student’s college career, and preparing for Family Weekend.
