Why should parents attend?
While you are attending sessions about life at Spring Hill College, your parents will also participate in sessions designed specifically for them. In addition to having opportunities to ask questions of College faculty, administration and staff, your parents will learn about academic and residence life, student financial services, and other College functions. It’s also a great opportunity for them to meet and mingle with other parents of new Spring Hill College students.
We ask your parents to pay a nonrefundable $85 fee per person, which includes the cost of meals and materials.
See local accommodations, below.
Who coordinates Badger Connection?
The Division of Student Affairs presents Badger Connection. The Student Affairs staff and 30 Badger Connection Guides will be here to assist you during your stay. The Badger Connection Guide staff is made up of Spring Hill College students who have gone through extensive training to make your visit as enjoyable as possible. These students make up the heart of Badger Connection.
