UPIKE Family Connections

Families of every University of Pikeville student are encouraged to share and support their student’s UPIKE experience. 

We understand the transition to college impacts students and their families. Family Connections is here to advise you of the processes in place on campus and provide you with invaluable resources you may lean on during your student’s collegiate experience. 

It won’t take long for you to understand why our students often express “UPIKE feels like home.”

Welcome to the UPIKE Family.

Want to hear some good news? You don’t have to navigate your student’s first year of college by yourself. I’ll be sharing information to guide you along the way. From sending care packages, to addressing homesickness, to learning the UPIKE lingo, I’ll be your go-to person. Communication is a two-way street, so don’t hesitate to reach out to me to help alleviate any uncertainty along the way.

I have been affiliated with the university for more than two decades as a student, employee and alumna. During my time on campus, I’ve developed widespread knowledge of the institution, cultivated relationships with faculty and staff across campus, and learned about a variety of aspects of higher education.

I look forward to getting to know your family as you begin your UPIKE experience.
