I hope this message finds you well during these unprecedented times. Please know you and your family are in the thoughts and prayers of the entire Chestnut Hill College Community.
As we work to identify and address the challenges associated with COVID-19, we know communication with you is critically important. Consequently, and in an effort to enhance current and future communications with parents and families throughout your student's experience at CHC, we are excited to announce our new Parent & Family Association.
Your role in the college decision process is critically important. We know you want to be sure your child chooses a college that will help them to grow educationally and socially, preparing them for the challenges they will face as professionals after graduation. We are also reminded during these difficult times that our children should be ready to act with kindness and compassion, ready to help those in need and to serve in local, state, national, and global communities. Rest assured that the CHC will work to foster this development within your child while providing a caring and compassionate atmosphere we hope will become their home away from home. In the words of Sister Maria Kostka Logue, first Dean of the College, Chestnut Hill College “will prepare you to learn how to earn a living because you must, but you are here to learn how to live.”
At CHC, we know and value the unique partnership between CHC, our students, and their families. We hope the CHC Parent & Family Association will be a valuable part of your experience while your student is studying with us. We hope you will find answers to important questions, as well as opportunities to become more engaged in our College community. Look for information about upcoming events, as well as helpful articles written by members of our community about the experience of our students, families, faculty, staff, and alumni.
Each week, a different department on campus will provide a special note of welcome. Make sure to check back often to learn about CHC's various departments, offices, and campus resources!
