Paige Peterson, sophomore writing and linguistics student, is creating an organization to bring student parents together.

Peterson believes a parent support group would be beneficial to other student parents on any college campus.

“Being a parent is really isolating on campus. You get left out of a lot of things,” Peterson said.

With the organization, Peterson wants other student parents to be able to support each other and socialize in ways they couldn’t otherwise.

The organization will be classified as a social support club. It will host banquets and other social events that will allow student parents to get to know each other. Student parents can bring their children to all events.

The club will provide child care services to members when necessary.

The GS campus has a daycare, but according to Peterson, some student parents cannot afford the service.
