Student Testimonials

Hear from our students!

"I graduated this past December 2019 (finally after 10 years + 2 kids). We've received so much support from SPHC whether that be financially, emotionally or mentally. Although I couldn't join the meetings as much as I would have liked to, I knew that every time I did, I felt "belong" being surrounded by peers who understood the struggles of the student parent life." (Jer, Undergraduate Student Parent)

"I cannot thank you enough for your help and guidance with this. As I told Stephanie on the phone yesterday, your work and assistance to student parents is invaluable. I am a well-resourced, mid-30s graduate student with a planned pregnancy and ample personal, social, and financial support. Still, navigating pregnancy and parenting in the academy has proven to be more challenging than I could have ever guessed. After we spoke, I felt heard, validated, and like I had regained some sense of control/wasn't just lost in the sea of unanswered emails or dismissive responses. I hope that you both know how important  your resources and supportive ears are for students of all ages and circumstances. If you ever need an advocate -- you've got one in me." (Teresa, Graduate Student Parent)
