There are 3 comments on Video: A Bittersweet Ritual: Parents Bid Their BU Freshmen Goodbye

  1. Oh, I am crying. That was so touching. But I still feel a little envious of the students whose parents can accompany them to college. I come from Guangzhou, which is in the southeast part of China. It would take a 15-hour straight flight to get to Boston. So I had to carry all my luggage on my own. But anyway, I got very emotional watching the video. I really miss my parents back in my hometown

  2. I’m very proud for my daughter Kilee Simon. She is going to be such an asset to this College and this College an asset for her.
    She is a boarding school graduate so we were prepared for this college adventure. I’m very appreciate that she has embarked on this pivotal point that we’ve been waiting for for the past few years.
    I’m filled with wonderful emotions of joy, accomplishment and expectation. This opportunity has exceeded my expectations and I’m thankful my daughter is her to learn so much, and I’m excited to learn with her.
    I told her upon her acceptance letter, Kilee BU!
    Thank you for choosing my daughter. Class of 2027.
