Parent Talk

Dear Parent,

In a matter of weeks, your student will step into a new beginning. Who would have thought the time would go by so quickly?

Soon you will be preparing to send your student to college. Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) is a wonderful place, and I want to extend a personal invitation to you and your student to join us at the Alexandria Campus. Our academic programs are excellent and competitive. NOVA graduates receive guaranteed admission to some of the nation's top universities such as Catholic University and George Washington University. In addition, there are a wide array of extra and co-curricular activities for students including clubs, leadership opportunities and athletics.

Parents, like students, need to know the ins and outs of life at NOVA. I would love to share more about NOVA with you at a special program, hosted by me, entitled Parent Talk. This two-hour program is designed for the parents of Alexandria Campus' prospective students. Parent Talk will provide information to help you learn more about the NOVA experience for you and your student.

Parent Talk will offer you the opportunity to meet parents of students who currently attend NOVA. During this program we will engage in group conversations. NOVA parents will share their personal perspectives on parenting a NOVA student. You will also get to hear from current NOVA students about their experiences at the Alexandria Campus.

Parent Talk promises to be informative, engaging, and entertaining. The two-hour investment you make by attending this program will yield a return that will last a lifetime! I am excited about meeting you and sharing information about the "NOVA Way."

Please join us on June 30 at 6:30 p.m., July 9 at 10:00 a.m. or July 14 at 6:30 p.m. at the Alexandria Campus for Parent Talk. If you would like additional information, please email me at or call me at 703.845.6219.

I look forward to meeting you at Parent Talk.

Delores Scott
Dean of Students
