As a parent, you’re facing some pretty unnerving times. Your child is thumbing through college brochures, pondering the rest of his or her life. And you want to be right there—making sure your child is surrounded by an environment at least as supportive and nurturing as the home you’ve created.
At Wilkes University, we get it. If there’s one word that sums up what we’re all about, it’s “mentoring.” What does that mean? In a few words, we think your child will learn better when given personal, individual support and guidance. We play an active role in your child’s life—not because we’re paid to, but because we want to. We will do anything in our power to help our students succeed, and we’ll be there to help them learn from their mistakes when they don't.
