Parent & Family Resources

Whether your family is new to McDaniel or has been around for generations, parents and families play an integral role in the McDaniel community. The parent and family resource page will serve as a one-stop shop for all the information you need to ensure your student's success at McDaniel and beyond. 

Staying Connected

Staying informed and connected is an important part of your McDaniel College journey. Here at McDaniel, we believe a knowledgeable and supportive family plays a critical role in a student's educational achievements and in helping them navigate the challenges and opportunities inherent in their college experience. For that reason, we invite you to participate in your student's experience at McDaniel, and are committed to providing important tools and resources to make it easy for your family to stay engaged. Our goal is to make the McDaniel experience as positive for you as it is for your student.
