The Biola Parent Council is made up of 30 parents of current Biola students who represent your needs and concerns to Biola's administration. The Council is actively involved in hosting parent events at Biola, providing feedback to Biola about their experiences with the University, and spear-heading fundraising activities. The Council meets on campus during New Student Orientation in August, at Biola Weekend in October, and at Grandparent's Day in March.
New members to the Council are usually selected after their student's first year of attendance at Biola and serve for the duration of their student's enrollment. The Biola Parent Council has been instrumental in several projects at Biola, including fundraising for the campus Library, the Chapel Seating Expansion, and the Olive Grove Park, as well as the creation of a Parent Dessert Reception at Opening Weekend, encouraging a change in the academic calendar to allow for a travel day at Thanksgiving, and lengthening the timeframe for move-in for new students. They also help with recruitment activities for parents of prospective students.
