Our Geneva Story

We learned about Geneva from the former pastor of our church who was an alumna. Also, two of my best friend′s children were currently attending Geneva. We visited about five other colleges, and Geneva was the one that felt most like "home." We′ve been so pleased with Hannah′s experience. The professors and staff of the music department are wonderful. It makes a parent feel good that when they see a professor at a concert, the professor knows to which student we belong.

Our Advice for Parents of College-Bound Students

  • Talk during the summer about expectations regarding communication and visits home.
  • Be supportive, but let your child solve problems on his/her own. Don′t always run to the rescue.
