The Class of 2017 stormed campus on Friday, armed with maps, Big Red Bags, most of the inventory of Bed Bath and Beyond and some advice from their parents. As I moved around North Campus, I witness some tearful goodbyes and, of course, some not-so-tearful ones. But, according to my volunteer survey, many had final words of wisdom to impart on their children who are not very child-like anymore. I I have compiled here some parental advice to impart upon all of you freshmen.
Stay healthy and don’t hesitate to tell us anything.
Be a leader, not a follower.
You’ll do fine, stay focused.
Health is most important, and that means being clean and eating right.
Don’t go as crazy as I did.
Don’t have too much fun.
Don’t play with your hair all day.
