All parents and guardians of current Vassar students are valued
members of our community. We encourage you to keep up-to-date on Vassar
news and events, connect with fellow parents and alumnae/i and, of
course, visit your son or daughter on campus.
The Office of Parent and Family Relations was established as point of
contact for parents and families. When you have a question and you're
not sure who to call, please contact us. If we don't know the answer,
we'll find help for you.

INFORMATION FOR NEW VASSAR PARENTS:
The Vassar Devils are a mix of devil’s food cake, fudge, ice cream and marshmallow sauce. The exact origin of Vassar Devils remains a mystery, although a recipe for a devil-like dessert was published in 1887 in The Miscellany News. Every September the freshman class treks to the Alumnae House to immerse themselves in this Vassar Tradition.
