Parents of College Students (POCS) is the parent company of all our "Parent of" platforms. Based in Oxford, MS POCS is the brainchild of Kate Rosson, a local entrepreneur who also started Parents of Ole Miss in February 2018 with the intention of connecting parents with the college town their student was living in. After the immediate success of POM, The "Parents of" platform grew to Parents of Mississippi State, Parents of Georgia, Parents of Auburn, Parents of Alabama and Parents of Vanderbilt, hiring local, well-connected individuals in each college town to help parents get familiar with local resources where they are sending their child off to college. All from a locals perspective.
There is nothing more unnerving than your child being far from home, them needing something, like new tires or a great doctor, and not knowing where the best place to go is. That's where POCS steps in.
We are your local resource to helping you navigate everything college, all from a fellow citizens perspective. We hope you enjoy and find our information informative and authentic and appreciate you taking time to follow us!
