Parents and Families: Welcome to the Husky Family!
We are honored that you have entrusted the education of your new student to BU! Orientation is not just for new students. Orientation is for parents and family of new students as well!
By attending a BU Preview day, parents and guardians are given an opportunity to meet faculty and current students, get a closer look at our scenic campus, learn about the array of activities and support services available to BU students, and to meet other parents!
We hope you will take full advantage of the resources and workshop geared specifically to the unique needs of parents and families. Parent orientation takes place at the same time as new student orientation.
All new students except summer freshmen and ACT 101/EOP students are required to attend a BU Preview Day.
Thank you for helping us make the most of your orientation!
Tentative Preview Day Schedule
Same schedule as your new student, except:
2:20-3:20 p.m. — New Husky Parents Workshop: We won't make their bed the way you do, and we can't fold their T-shirts that special way only you can; however we do offer many resources and services that aim to give your student a "home-like" experience. Bring all your questions, and we will answer each one. This workshop is one of the most highly rated of the day. You will soon see why!
3:30-4:15 p.m. — The Parent Party!: Love to tell you more about this ... but it's a secret.
