What is one piece of advice you would give family members who are attending orientation with their student?
I would tell family members attending orientation with their student that they should make sure they spend enough time together and separate. While it is important for your student to experience the college with the family and learn about the campus together, the student also needs some time to grow more comfortable with the student community without being so dependent or attached to the family.
What's the best question students can ask each other at orientation to break the ice?
A great question for students to ask each other at orientation to break the ice is to ask where they are living on campus. This question can network students to know people in different buildings as well as discovering people who live in their own buildings.
