Panther Parent Association
When students attend Georgia State University, they embark on a special, life changing experience that allows them to grow as scholars and individuals. For many parents, watching their student go off to college makes the end of another special experience: the student’s time in the family home. Georgia State University knows the important role parents play in students’ lives and wants parents to play an important role in the life of the university and have a special experience of their own while their students attend college.
That is why all parents are invited to join the Panther Parent Association (PPA). Parents who are Atlanta natives, live in another state or even on another continent can enjoy the benefits of the PPA for a one-time fee of $50 per parent. Benefits of joining the PPA include a welcome gift, a discount at the bookstore (but not on books), access to the Parents Hotline which can answer any Georgia State related question, in person and teleconference meetings of the annual PPA and special benefits during Parents Weekend. Students whose parents are members will be eligible to apply for the PPA scholarship. Most importantly, it offers parents the opportunity to state connected with Georgia State University and to network with other parents.
Parents who are interested in joining the PPA should complete the application. Parents who are interested in greater involvement can apply for the two currently open positions on the PPA Board: member-at-large and treasurer. Any member is free to apply. This unique opportunity allows one to do meaningful service for the other members of the PPA and work with a fun collaborative group of parents on innovative and exciting programs! Parents who are interested in one of the Executive Board positions should email Parent Relations.
The PPA is committed to the parent experience and looks forward to collaborating with as many parents of Georgia State Students as possible. PPA hopes that parents join in building a strong and dynamic community within the larger Panther family!
