If you are reading this blog you have obviously figured out how to navigate the Wofford website. It is a wealth of information about the college, it’s faculty, and the students. I love visiting the website.
You never know what pictures will pop up. You may even see your child!!! Sometimes I will see my daughter, Kristyn, in a picture that she didn’t even know about. Of course, she will then accuse me of “stalking the website” again. You can go to the Wofford home page at www.wofford.edu, click on the About tab at the top of the page and select “This Week at Wofford” in the drop down menu. This will take you to the weekly photos taken around campus. You can look at photos from this week, or go back and see pictures from throughout the year. Watch the seasons change, and get a sense of the calm and beauty of Wofford’s physical plant. When you realize you have spent an hour and a half looking at pictures, then you can quickly go back to the home page and search for the info that brought you to the website in the first place. It’s so easy to get distracted because one link will peak your interest to another link, and so on.
You can view the latest athletic scores, schedule of games, or check out course requirements for your child’s major. Just about anything you want to know about Wofford can be found on the website, but if you still need more info just call the department in question. I have found the faculty and staff to be most helpful and receptive to questions and concerns whether they come from the parents or students.
In addition to the main Wofford website, the Alumni Office has created a page specifically for current parents. This page includes an event calendar that lists important dates and events for you and your student. There is a Resources page, that includes links to information about financial aid, international studies, and everything in between. Click on the News link to read Wofford news stories current parents would find most interesting. The For Your Students page is where you can go to order Terrier Cakes for your student. This page also has information about Hub City Delivery, a great new service offered to the campus area. Students can order food and have it delivered from some of their restaurants that don’t normally deliver! The new parents page has more to offer than I can list in one post. The best thing to do is go to the new For Parents web page by clicking here and see for yourself! You can also “like” Wofford College Parents on Facebook, or “follow” WoffordParents on Twitter to connect with other parents and keep up with important news and events just for parents.
