The Office of Family Relations is committed to strengthening relationships between the University and its parents. That is why we have a Vanguard Family Association. Families of Vanguard students are automatically members of the association, and as such, you can be ensured of receiving updates, pertinent information, and meaningful opportunities to connect to and serve the Vanguard Community. Whether you are near or far, there is no shortage of opportunity to connect at Vanguard. Volunteering at Family Weekend and sharing about your Vanguard experience with prospective families are just a few of the ways in which you can connect and serve here at Vanguard.
Current Ways to Get Involved
Host a Student for Thanksgiving
If you have room in your home for a displaced student during the Thanksgiving holiday, please let us know. We have many students that for a variety of reasons cannot head home for the holiday. We would love to see them “adopted” by a loving family that would be willing to share their home and meal with a student in need. If you would prefer to have someone your student knows, have your student ask around within their friend group to see if there is someone in need. Thank you in advance for your hospitality!
