Parents & Families
Let Your Student Shine
Choosing the right college very often is a family decision. We know as parents you’re
heavily invested on the college community your student joins, beyond financially.
You want them to be supported, inspired, safe and empowered to bring their talents
to the world. So do we.
Join Our Legacy
We place a heightened emphasis on letting parents get involved with our community.
One way you can do just that is by joining PBA’s Parent Council. As part of the Parent Council, you’ll strive to provide effective parent-university interaction through events
and services, as well as publications. And you’ll meet like minded parents who want
to help create the best possible experience for parents of PBA students.
Be Part of the Energy
PBA offers a college experience most schools simply can’t match. As a parent of a
PBA student, you’ll see what we mean. From Welcome Week and Family Weekend to Commencement
and other activities and events throughout the year, we believe that by welcoming
parents and other family members of our students into our vibrant, Christ-first community,
we all grow in mind, spirit and faith. Here are some next steps:
Supported and Safe
We know that nothing is more important to you than the safety of your student. That’s
the most important thing to us, too. We invest extensive resources to ensure that
every PBA student has the support they need, and will live and learn in the safest
environment possible. We employ nearly a dozen safety and security officers who patrol
campus—on foot, on bicycles and via marked vehicles—24 hours a day, seven days a week.
And you’ll find 22 emergency call boxes strategically located across all areas of
campus. Learn more about Campus safety & Security.
Helpful Tips & Resources
Having your child begin his or her college career can be a stressful experience for
parents, especially if they haven't lived away from home before. Check out our Helpful Tips & Resources to help you and your student navigate this important time of transition for the family.
Every year, PBA celebrates Homecoming & Family Weekend- an ongoing tradition of activities
including a Sailfish family barbecue before the volleyball and soccer games, performances
by the PBA Symphony, a Family Workship Project and more!
