下载瑞彩祥云快3ways to get involved

there is a reason our community is known as a f&mily. we want parents and guardians to feel connected to this place that their student will call home for the next four years. there are lots of ways you can have an impact on your student and the institution:

Attend an Event

parents are encouraged to attend f&m's diverse event offerings. opportunities to connect with other members of the f&m community occur year round both on campus and in any of f&m's numerous regional chapters.

Volunteering & Mentoring

下载瑞彩祥云快3 parents are among f&m's most loyal donors, but they are just as generous with their time. they volunteer to mentor students, come to campus to discuss the challenges and opportunities within their industries, and help us place f&m students in internships and jobs.

Get Involved
