Any parent who’s dropped a child off to begin college will tell you that it’s both exhilarating and bittersweet, lonely and exciting. You’ve spent years saving and planning to make this moment possible, and suddenly the inevitable is here—time to say good-bye.
BU Today sought out some Class of 2022 members and their parents during Move-in weekend to find out their take on this emotional milestone. “As parents, this is what we’ve worked for, this is what we lived for,” one dad said. “It’s the highlight of a long, long road.”
Parents, take heart. Family and Friends Weekend (October 19 to 21) will be here before you know it.
