Dear Parents and Guardians,

Congratulations on your student’s acceptance to Boston University! This is an exciting time in your lives. As your student prepares for his or her BU experience, please consider the BU Parents Program as a valuable resource for your family.

We invite you to get to know the BU community—our vibrant students, accomplished faculty, campus happenings, and our impact on the world. We’re here to answer any questions that you may have along the way. We also recommend that you subscribe to BU Today, follow the Parents Program on Facebook, and listen to the Parents Program Radio Show.

We are equally excited to get to know you and your student. Join us for Summer Orientation, meet the Class of 2020 and their parents, and meet the Student Affairs team working to support your student. While you’re in the city take a ride on the “T”, visit Fenway Park and explore the history of Beantown.

Boston is a bustling college town (with fifty-four higher education institutions in metropolitan Boston) which is why we encourage you to mark your calendars for Boston University’s Family & Friends Weekend on Friday, October 21–Sunday, October 23, 2016. This is also the same weekend as the Head of the Charles Regatta so make your reservations soon. We have a list of discounted room blocks at Boston area hotels for your convenience.

As you and your student prepare for your next adventure, we know you are both experiencing changes in your lives. These transitions are to be expected. We want to reassure you that the Parents Program is here for you throughout the BU experience. Call us at 617-358-1187 or send us an email. We welcome you and your student to the BU family! ear Parent/Guardian,


The Parents Program
