Resources for Cowboy Parents to Help Your Student Succeed

As of March 18, 2020 All classes at the Stillwater and Tulsa campuses will be delivered online for the remainder of the spring semester. 

Every Cowboy Family will have different needs during this time of transition. Some students will remain in Stillwater living by themselves or with their same roommates while completing the semester online, while others will move back home into their old bedrooms. Some of us are struggling with income or job losses, or even the loss of a loved one. Some family members continue to work in essential jobs or work from home while also helping to home school younger siblings.

As a parent, you have spent at least 18 years handling one crisis or stressor after another and you know you will get through this one too. But, sometimes knowing that you’ll make it doesn’t help you get through each day. In addition to the linked resources below are some tips to help you get through this with your student no matter where they are.
