Welcome Parents of First-Year Students to the Ambrosian Community!

We hope that your student is adjusting well to the college life here at St. Ambrose University. While your student is away, we would like to offer tips, suggestions, and useful resources to help you as a parent adapt to this transition as well.

Please visit the First-Year Parents section for useful tips provided by the SAU Career Center on how parents can help their student during their first year in college. Also, check out our suggested reading section for additional tips.

Because we welcome you as well to the St. Ambrose University community, subscribe to the AmbroseZine newsletter to stay connected to the latest stories, events, and BUZZ.

Here's a quick guide to campus contacts. If you don't see the department you're looking for listed, search the A-Z directory or use the search bar above.

Don't have your GPS handy? View our maps and directions to SAU. Once on campus, find the building you're looking for with the campus map.

If you need a place to stay while visiting your son or daughter, use our hotel guide.

While your student is in class, tour the Quad Cities attractions, eat at the local restaurants, and engage in the entertainment.

Lastly, if you cannot physically make it to campus, but still want to send your love by sending a letter or care package, here's how:
