Information for Parents 家长信息

Welcome to the Western Illinois University community in Macomb, Illinois! Your daughter or son is about to begin a life-changing experience. At Western Illinois University (WIU), we recognize this is a time of great excitement and anticipation for not only students but also for parents. It is only natural that parents may find it difficult to send their son or daughter away to school, but sending a student to school in a foreign country is often even more difficult. Parents play a big role – even from a distance – in offering support during their student’s university career.
欢迎来到伊利诺伊州马克姆市西伊利诺伊大学!您的孩子将在这里开始一段改变人生的旅程。在西伊大(WIU),我们认识到这不仅对学生而且对学生家长而言都是很兴奋和值得期待的。家长很难将孩子送去上学,将孩子送到国外上学往往更加困难。家长在孩子的大学生涯中——即使大学在远方——扮演着重要的角色。
