Parent & Family Programs

Calling all Bronco parents and family members!

Parent & Family Programs is committed to forming partnerships with and providing resources for parents and families of our Bronco students. While we encourage students to fully immerse themselves in our campus environment, we realize that parents continue to play a valuable role in their lives. We provide a variety of programs and services to keep parents abreast of life at Fayetteville State University, including a bi-monthly Parents Newsletter, occasional email and web messages, and an annual Parents & Family Weekend that offers a constellation of information sessions, performances, athletic events, and other opportunities to engage in all that FSU has to offer.

Parent and Family Programs is an initiative sponsored by the Division of Student Affairs at Fayetteville State University. The goals of Parent and Family Programs are:

  • To support parents and families as their students navigate the FSU campus.
  • To increase student retention and persistence by providing resources and sessions that will equip parents and family members to be a critical resource for their students.
  • To encourage active participation in the success of their FSU student.
  • To provide a pathway for parents and families to reconnect and spend time with their FSU students.

Fayetteville State University (FSU) is committed to the health and safety of the campus community and to providing accurate and timely information regarding COVID-19 and its impact on the FSU community. As you prepare to bring your student to campus, to learn more visit:
