Welcome

Dear BU Family Members,

Welcome to the Boston University Parents Program!

As part of the Dean of Students’ Office, we are committed to being here for you and your student throughout his/her BU journey. At Boston University we want parents, guardians, family members, and friends to be engaged with and well informed about the University. We encourage parents/guardians to  follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. We also invite parents/guardians to attend local receptions and we provide opportunities to volunteer on behalf of the University in your hometowns. We can be reached at (617) 358-1187 or at parents@bu.edu. If your student is beginning his/her BU experience in January 2019 and you have questions, please contact Robin Karp, Chairman of Outreach, Parents Leadership Council and parent of a January program alumna, at robinkarp1@gmail.com. If your student is beginning his/her BU experience in September, we have already reserved hotel rooms for Move-In Weekend.

Thank you,

BU Parents Program
