Great idea: FAQs for parents of graduating seniors

Kara Powell | Apr 12, 2011

Last week I had coffee with a student ministries pastor who shared that his church’s college pastor is creating a FAQ list for parents of college students. Apparently this college pastor was inspired to do so not only by the questions parents were asking but also by University of Michigan’s online resources for parents of college students.

Whether you create your own resources for parents of graduating seniors/college students or simply point them to good existing resources like Michigan’s, I think this is a great idea. Once you create this list or other resources, you can send them out year after year.

What else are you doing to prepare your graduating seniors and/or their parents for life after graduation?
