Proud to have you aboard

Eckerd College changes lives, including the parents and family of our students. We are proud to have you as part of the Eckerd College community. We are confident that you will find this community stimulating and friendly, with many people ready to help you and your student.

Parent Council

The Eckerd College Parent Council is a group of committed parents who support the College both financially and through service. The Council serves as representatives of the larger parent community, provides input to the College as needed, and enriches the Eckerd community by encouraging parent financial support and enthusiasm for issues critical to Eckerd’s mission. Parent Council meetings are held annually on campus, in the fall.

Our students give employers and graduate schools exactly what they want. If our enhanced classroom experience doesn’t get them employed or in grad school within six months of graduation, we offer them continued professional guidance and class audits.
