What is one piece of advice you would give family members who are attending orientation with their student?
Trust your student. They are about to enter a new chapter in their life, they are going to make a mistake in one way or another, but with those mistakes the student will learn for the best and our families have to trust that their child is just trying to find themselves and figure out what they are passionate about.
What myth about orientation would you like to dispel? Why should this myth be busted?
Just because you don't make a great friend group at orientation, does not mean you will not find one further along the year. This myth should be busted as sometimes students don't find a friend group during orientation and then get anxious that they might not find friends.
