Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success

Parent and Family Orientation

The Wahtera Center is pulling together a library of resources for parents and families to access starting on August 17 and throughout the academic year. While we will not be hosting live sessions this year, we have prepared and collected some valuable information to help you understand what your student needs to transition to and navigate their Michigan Tech experience. We encourage you to find your topics of interest.

In addition, on Sunday, August 23 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m, we will be hosting an open house with a limited number of student services offices including Career Services, local healthcare providers, the ExSEL program, Student Financial Services, Student Leadership and Involvement, the Registrar, and the Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success.  This program is intended to complement our online resources and serve as an opportunity to take care of final business and ask questions or for more information, as necessary. Additionally, the Center for Mental Health and Well-Being will be open in the Administration Building. Throughout Move-In Weekend, Student Disability Services will have times to schedule remote meetings.

We also encourage you to contact student services offices by phone or email prior to your arrival through 5 p.m. on Friday, August 21, 2020, after that point many of our student services staff will be helping support Check-In and Move-in.
