Your Connection to Douglass Residential College
Preparing your daughter for college is both an exciting and challenging endeavor. University life itself then poses its challenges as your student learns to navigate Rutgers, succeed in her academics, explore different social avenues and identify her talents and passions. You can be confident that as a member of Douglass Residential College, your daughter will be provided the tools and guidance to make good decisions, take advantage of appropriate Rutgers resources and ultimately excel. She will find a supportive and friendly foundation in the Douglass community from which to grow and make lifelong connections.
Douglass Residential College offers a number of resources that can aid you in ensuring your student experiences a smooth transition. You are invited along with your daughter to visit us any time throughout the year to learn more about us.

We encourage your participation in the Douglass College Parents' Association (DCPA), an active organization that exists to support the students, parents, guardians and the objectives of Douglass Residential College.
The DCPA supports students by offering scholarships to deserving students demonstrating excellence in scholarship, leadership, campus activities and community service. The organization supports parents and guardians by being a committed presence and source of information about Douglass, by acting as a forum through which parents/guardians may voice their opinions and by providing guidance if an issue or problem arises during your daughter's time at college. Please contact the leadership of the DCPA to find out more.
