A Handbook for Johns Hopkins Parents
2013-2014 Academic Year
From the day new students first arrive on campus until they graduate (and beyond), Hopkins advisors and counselors work closely with them to guide and shape their academic experiences. Many students arrive with clear goals and the skills to reach those goals, but all can benefit from academic advisors who support and guide them on their voyage of discovery
This guide is meant to help you, the parent, learn about the incredible range of resources your child has access to as a member of the Johns Hopkins student community. Reading through this guide, you'll learn about
- advising year by year of your student's college stay,
- career counseling services,
- internships, research, and study abroad opportunities,
- how to prepare for graduate school, medical school, and law school,
- answers to a parent's frequently-asked questions,
- and some resources we think you'll find useful.
We hope you find this guide practical and informative. If you have any questions, please contact Jean Free at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A Letter from Kevin G. Shollenberger
Vice Provost for Student Affairs
Dear Hopkins Parent,
We know that you have a strong interest in your child’s happiness and success at Johns Hopkins. You have worked diligently over the years to instill values that will guide your child during his or her entire life. Yet you still face the question of when to step in and when to step back, when to let your son or daughter stumble, and when to swoop in to save the day.
