As your Longhorns adjust to campus life and gain more independence, they will likely continue to turn to you for guidance. Although it can be difficult to do so, it is often important to allow them the opportunity to make their own way-even if that means making mistakes and learning from them. Here are some valuable resources to which you can refer your Longhorns during these times:
This is the home base for the College of Liberal Arts. Your Longhorns can access this Web site to find majors, degree plans, advising information, courses, syllabi, and much more.
This Web site has the most popular links that might be of interest to parents and visitors.
