Dear Torero Families,
Happy fall! Although the weather still feels like summer in San Diego the spirit of fall is in the air.
Some news from the Office of Parent Relations: We would like to congratulate Dr. Karina Viaud, our former Assistant Director of Parent Relations, who recently took a position as Director of Parent and Family Programs at UCSD. For those of you who had the opportunity to meet Karina you know she will be missed. Due to this transition your October Parent E-Newsletter is reaching you late. Our apologies. We will be on track again soon. We are in the process of hiring a new Assistant Director who will be equally helpful and skilled in Parent Relations. Watch for the announcement in November!
We had our best ever Homecoming and Family Weekend last weekend! Thank you to those who participated and shared in the Torero Spirit. From the Big Blue Bash and Concert, to the intriguing and informative Knowledge Transfer on Entrepreneurship, to the spirited Tailgate Party and victorious Football Game, to the Founder’s Chapel Mass and announcement of the Torero Parents of the Year, fun was had by all! For more Torero family fun, save the date for Grandparents’ Weekend on February 20-21, 2015. All family members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
As we prepare for the holiday season we wish you and your students well and want you to know we’re here to help guide you to any support your student may need.
The Office of Parent Relations
A Message from
University Ministry supports students in their religious and spiritual development and encourages them to participate in the campus community in ways that allow them to experience a strong sense of belonging as well as helping them discover who they are called to become. Students from all religious backgrounds, as well as those still searching for their religious identity, are invited to take part in all of our liturgies, programs, activities and services. University Ministry is a place to belong, believe and become.

The University of San Diego Parent Board conducts an Outreach program to all our Freshman and Transfer students during their first semester at USD. Emails will be sent out in the next few weeks to these families from our Parent Board members, Parent Ambassadors and volunteers to make sure all the Freshman/Transfer students are experiencing a smooth transition to life at USD. If students are experiencing any issues, these volunteers will be able to put parents in contact with the proper USD office that can help.
Please look for these emails in the next few weeks. We would appreciate a quick email response to let us know how your student is doing. Our goal is that every student has a great USD experience.
