Rattler Parent Engagement Program


Welcome to the RATTLER PARENT ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM

The RATTLER PARENT ENGAGEMENT PROGRAM is designed to help parents be actively
involved in their students' first year experience.  Parents play a vital role in the success of the
college experience for their student.  We will be communicating, explaining, roles, giving advice
and being available for questions and concerning during this first year process. We will be
offering opportunities for parents to develop relationships with different departments and
personnel on FAMU campus. Although parent involvement will basically be virtual and supported
by social media, we will be here to assist you with anything you need, so you can rest assured that
your student is receiving top notch education with top notch care.  We take RATTLER PRIDE in our motto
