Current Golden Bear Parents and Families

Congratulations on becoming part of the Golden Bear Family!

At Western New England University, we consider parents/guardians and families to be partners in ensuring student success. The University takes great pride in creating a vital and meaningful relationship with you. As partners, we look forward to working together with you to help you learn more about the first year, university, as well as connect you to the many programs and resources Western New England University has to offer.

We know families are looking for ways to hear more from the University and a nice way to get connected is through our parent/guardian Facebook pages, our Golden Bear Parent and Family groups. These parent and family class pages are a good way to learn more about all aspects of academic and campus life. Another great way to connect is through our Parents Association. With quarterly meetings and special events, the Parents Association is also a great way to get to know other Golden Bear families. In addition, please make sure to sign up for our Golden Bear Parent and Family email and newsletter.

We also know you have questions and concerns. It is our hope that you will feel you can reach out to our campus offices and administrators and that we can be an understanding ear and a resource to you. Please feel free to stop in or call us in Student Affairs at (413) 782-1282.
