Family Resources

You've done a great job to get your student to this point, and we are confident that your student can and will succeed here at the George Washington University.

The Colonial Health Center (CHC) educates the campus community--including parents and families--about alcohol and other drug issues. The CHC is a one-stop resource center for students, helping them make responsible and healthy decisions regarding alcohol and other drugs. 

College is an exciting time for students and families, but it can also bring about changes in the relationship you have with your student. He or she will be away from home, perhaps for the first time. Although they may not admit it, many students feel insecure in new social settings and want to fit in. You still have an influence on your student’s decision making and can be a big help in their successful transition to college life. Information from this section of our website is both useful and relevant to every year of college.
