The UMass Amherst Office of Parent Services hosts several events each year including:

  • Parents & Family orientation aimed at new students and families
  • Fall and Winter Welcome during Move-In
  • Family Weekend in October

All parents/caregivers of UMass Amherst undergraduates are members of the UMass Amherst Parents Association (UMAPA). Membership entitles families the opportunity to volunteer and/or join the Advisory Council.  Family members also receive a calendar every year their student is enrolled at the university.

Keep an eye on the Office of Parent’s Services web site for more details and opportunities to get involved!
