For Parents

Smiling student, parents and dean

Who are the people who will teach, guide, challenge, and mentor your student in the next few years? Several times a year Peabody provides families with face time with faculty and administrators who support the student experience outside the classroom. The college sponsors special events for parents during freshman move-in and summer orientation, creating the opportunity to ask questions, meet other parents, and talk with Assistant Dean Monique Robinson-Nichols and Peabody professors. Our Office of Student Affairs is also the best place to start if parents need referrals to resources on campus, and our staff welcomes your interest.

All prospective undergraduates—including the 1,100 enrolled at Peabody—apply through Vanderbilt University. This is a convenient single source for the fundamentals (campus map, parking, calendar) including tips on easing the transition to college life, the most recent Family Weekend photos, and other valuable information.
