Parents and Families

Welcome to Oxford College—we're so happy you’ve joined our community. We've gathered useful resources to help you engage with Oxford and offer support to your student as needed—whether you're just joining us or you're in your second year as part of the Oxford family.

For Parents of Newly Admitted Students

Parenting college students from a distance comes with both the rewards of seeing your teenagers continue their development into full adulthood and the challenges of trying to support them from a distance through their difficult times. Your role as a parent remains important, and you can play a significant role in helping them navigate through their transition to college.

Oxford College is located on Emory’s original campus, 36 miles east of Atlanta. Usually, the best way to get a feel whether Oxford is a good fit for your student is to visit. As Oxford has shifted to remote learning and work in response to COVID-19, unfortunately campus visits are canceled for the foreseeable future. While we realize virtual tours aren’t the same as being here in person, we invite you to tour Oxford virtually until you can visit campus in person.
