New Networking Site for Parents!

Parents Relations logo

Launched this week, WU Parent Connections is a social networking site exclusively for Willamette parents.  If you’re interested in interacting with and learning from other Willamette parents, then you’ll want to join this site.

WU Parent Connections allows you to create a profile with a picture, load pictures you take at Willamette events, even upload videos.  The Forums section allows you to open a discussion on any topic, such as places to stay in Salem or best restaurants, and read responses from other parents.  You can also read about Willamette-sponsored events or propose an event for other Willamette parents in your area.

WU Parent Connections is an invitation-only site.  To get started, go to WU Parent Connections and enter an email address and password.  You’ll be directed to the main page of WU Parent Connections where you fill out a brief profile.  Then you can explore all the features the site has to offer.

Some of you have been using the Parent Listserv to interact with parents during the last year.  We will continue to maintain the listserv for now even though WU Parent Connections provides a similar discussion forum.  We will announce well in advance if we plan to discontinue the listserv.

We hope this new service is an easier way for you to connect with other Willamette parents.  As always, we welcome your feedback at parents@willamette.edu.
