News for Families of SC Students
Greetings from Southwestern College!
We have finally settled into a nice pace for the 2013-2014 school year. The weather is getting cooler as campus activities are in full swing. At the same time, classes get more difficult, deadlines get closer, and expectations are raised from professors, coaches, and activity directors.
As parents you play a key role in assisting your student’s coping skills. We send out this newsletter as an intentional connection between you, your students, and the college. In this edition, the campus minister, Rev. Ashlee Alley, provides some advice for parents. Kevin and Stephanie Reffner share their reflections on why their son, Daniel Reffner, chose Southwestern. And finally, this newsletter provides practical information documents produced by the dean of students, Dan Falk. We hope you will find them and the whole newsletter helpful.
But nothing helps your student succeed more than your presence. While we LOVE having you on campus anytime, sometimes that is not possible. You can always send an encouraging text or fun-filled care package. As always, take care of yourself and take care of your Builder.

IT'S THE PEOPLE AND THE CONNECTIONS: A PARENT'S PERSPECTIVE ON THE COLLEGE SEARCH
Another tall coffee and an early start to a long road trip. It seemed almost “academic” to be visiting other schools. Certainly Daniel realized he was destined to be a Builder.
A LETTER TO PARENTS - FROM THEIR CAMPUS MINISTER
It’s perfectly normal for you to see a lot of changes in your child during the first semester at college—the campus minister knows!
YOUR STUDENT AND THEIR HEALTH
Of course, we all hope your student never has a health problem at Southwestern, but odds are that your son or daughter will be under the weather at least a time or two.
