Roane State to host parent and family ‘Connection Receptions’

Roane State Community College is planning a series of events on its campuses that are aimed at keeping student families informed ahead of the fall semester.

Beginning later this month, the Parent and Family Connection Receptions will welcome students and their families to campus to answer any questions they have about Roane State.

The Oak Ridge Campus event will be from 4 - 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 10.

The Campbell County Campus event will be from 4 - 6 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 12.

These events are drop-in style with no appointments or registration needed in advance. Parents and other family members are welcome to attend with or without their student. In addition to providing important updates and answering questions, Roane State staff will assist attendees with signing up for the Parent and Family Portal. The Parent and Family Portal is an online service that provides instant access to campus news, deadlines and student progress information.

Snacks and drinks will be provided at the events, along with giveaways while supplies last.
