Parents Guide to SBU

You're an important member of our Bonaventure family

We invite you to partner with us so that together we can ensure your student’s continued success.

This area of our website is a resource for family members of current Bonaventure students. Prospective students and families are welcome to explore these pages, but the information from Admissions may better answer your questions. 
Family members will find links to help answer questions that may arise during your student's time at Bona's and how to appropriately support your student and foster independence, learning, and personal development. You will find answers to Parents' Frequently Asked Questions, as well as information on The Value of a St. Bonaventure EducationAcademicsHealth & Safety, and Money Matters.

Help us stay connected 

In order for us to better communicate with you, please join the SBU Parents & Families Facebook group. Facebook logo
We also welcome your questions and comments. Please reach out to us at any time by sending an email. Email us now.
