Dear BU Parent & Families,

Congratulations to you and your student on their admission to Boston?University! You should be very proud of this accomplishment. The incoming class always brings new vibrancy to our campus. We are so pleased to welcome your family to the BU community!

We hope that you will join us for Boston University Parent & Family Orientation. This dynamic program introduces you to opportunities available at BU, gives you time to explore campus, and provides the opportunity to become familiar with the BU support systems and staff on campus.

We created Parent and Family Programs just for you—to keep you well informed, to encourage your involvement, and to answer your questions. From our website to our Facebook page, we strive to connect you to campus and to fellow BU parents. To that end, we ask that you be on the lookout for our virtual Family Farewells later in the summer. We also encourage you to become involved through the Parent & Family Volunteers Program or the Parent & Family Advisory Board, which provide volunteer opportunities both on campus and in your hometown.

We look forward to seeing you at our virtual Orientation sessions. In the meantime, please watch our video welcoming you to the Boston?University family!

All best,

Christy Loring

Associate Director, Parent & Family Programs
