Ask a Parent!

"Ask A Parent" is an online resource that enables prospective or incoming parents to connect with current family members for advice and insight.  Our ambassadors are "experts" of their own experience and that of their student. 

Some examples of questions may include: How much money should I give my student for allowance? How do you stay in touch with your student?  What advice do you have for a first-time parent of a college student?  How did your student access internships?  Can you recommend a shipping/storage company?  What transportation options do you recommend during the holidays?, etc.  Please regard this connection as a resource and not as the final answer to your questions.   

Please allow up to 48 hours to return your request.

If you have questions, please contact us at families.gwu.edu.
