WELCOME FROM THE DIRECTOR
Greetings from Parent Services! Below you will find information for parents of both current and future Patriots. I thought it would be interesting for all of you to learn more about our Spriritual Life Office and what they do. I also thought you may want to know a little about our Greek organizations. While a very small percentage of our students are in a Greek organization at DBU, they all make a very positive impact on our campus life in their own special way. The second section of this newsletter will help any future Patriot parents in regards to financial resources. It will also give you some tips on visiting campus with your student. This is a very important part of the college search process.
I hope you enjoy this month's Patriot Parent Connection. If there is anything I can do to help you, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Director of Parent Services
The variety of Spiritual Life programs and events offered to DBU students helps every student to experience servant leadership. Students have opportunities to serve at home or abroad. DBU’s Spiritual Life office also seeks to deepen the spiritual walk of students. Click here http://whydbu.dbu.edu/DBU-Life/Spiritual-Life.html to learn more about Spiritual Life at DBU.
The Greek Life community at Dallas Baptist University is an excellent way to enhance your student's education and meet new and interesting people who share common interests and goals. The friendships forged through these Christ-centered fraternities and sororities are strong, with shared memories and experiences that will play a significant role in their personal journey through the college years and beyond.

JUST FOR FUTURE PARENTS:
CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIP
The next priority deadline for our Christian Leadership Scholarship is March 1. This scholarship is awarded through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions to new students who have demonstrated exceptional Christian character and leadership abilities as well as proven academic skills. If your student has not already done so, encourage them to contact their Admissions Counselor to get started on their application.
The FAFSA is now available for 2012-2013 Patriots. The information should be based on your 2011 tax information. Click here http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ to begin your FAFSA. If you have questions about the FAFSA, contact the Office of Financial Aid at 214-333-5336.
