Parents & Family Resources

Parents and family of current students are always considered part of the lion family. Among many resources available on our website, the following will help you stay connected with your student’s new community.

As you navigate our site, you will find information organized under categories. For example, under “Academics” you will find academic calendar, exam schedule and graduation information. Under “Current Students” you will find information about Student Life and Residence Halls.

In addition to the resources found here, you may be interested to follow day to day happenings on social media. We encourage you to follow the university main accounts, the Mars Hill University President accounts, as well as your favorite athletic teams, clubs and organizations.

Social Media

If you are a new parent, exploring Mars Hill, we encourage you to:

  • Get  directions and explore the campus map if you need it while you visit.
  • Shop at the online bookstore.
  • Meet your student for a meal at one of the on campus dining spots.
  • Explore shops and restaurants in downtown Mars Hill.
  • Attend family weekend and connect with other families.
  • Encourage your student to use the many student resources available to them.
  • Invest in your student’s experience.

Many events on campus are open to the public.
