Parents - we’re glad to have you as part of the Valpo family! As your student experiences all that college life has to offer, we want to offer you an invitation to participate in activities to support them.


Be sure to join our Facebook group, Valparaiso University Parents. Here you can ask questions, provide feedback, and interact with fellow parents of Valparaiso University students.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for Family Weekend! Hosted the weekend of October 27-29, 2017, Family Weekend is an opportunity for parents and families to come back to campus for the first time since seeing their students off to college. Family Weekend provides an opportunity for families to reunite, visit the town of Valparaiso, and see for themselves what college life is like for their students at Valpo.

Did you know that the University Guild offers care packages for Valpo students? Each year at Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and semester finals (December and May), you can order care packages for your student. Visit the Guild website for more information.

The University has assembled a list of Frequently Asked Questions for parents: Parents FAQs. If your question is not answered there, please feel free to contact the Office of Alumni Engagement.
