    Prior to the start of my S's freshman year he was at a music camp on the other side of the country and needed me to meet him with the rest of his stuff for school (instead of coming all the way back home and then back east again). He had to attend international orientation which is 2 weeks prior to the start of school so there was no one around in his residence or on campus when he moved in. Was nice for me because he let me hang out in his room and wander the campus with him (which never would have happened otherwise). There was a a parent orientation during this week but I left the day orientation started. He was ready for me to be gone - lol.

    It's more of a way to figure out what sort aesthetic your teachers/institution is judging things by. I went to all the orientations and learned a great deal from each one.

    That's what I was thinking. Plus it's to the first kid going to college and music school and I love the CCM campus.

    Attended D's summer orientation for UMich and the parent-orientation organizers were fantastic. Parent activities rarely overlapped with the kids, but it was a good chance to hear lots of the same information about finances, grades, health, etc.; Made some good parent-music friends, and since I was the main transportation system to and from a summer program, just seemed easier to go along!
