"In loco parentis"....Do you live near a college?

in the place or role of a parent.

Parents, I thought it would be nice to know a parent who lives in or around the town where your student/children are attending. Some of us live many miles away and it is hard to deal with emergencies quickly if the situation arises. Emergencies may include auto accidents, injuries, illness, arrests or other legal situations, etc. ALso for recommendations on hotels to stay in when you visit, or other local advice. Not for loans. Not for minor illnesses. Not for airport transport unless there is an emergency.

The heading should be the college near where you live and contact info in the message.

I think also since we are supposed to prepare for emergencies our country or cities may face, it would be nice to have someone in that town.

    I am in Atlanta so fairly close to all of these schools. Athens is 60 minutes away but I can still help somewhat as I spent 7 years in school there.

    I will exchange phone numbers via private messages.

    While I do not reside in a college town, I am within striking distance of Houston, San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi--about equi-distant from all, like spokes on a wheel. I can be PM'd for emergency help/suggestions.

    I live a few blocks away from SMU.

    I can be PM'd in emergency situations or if someone's S/D gets stuck in the airport (D-FW or Dallas Love Field) en route to somewhere else.

    I'm in the Boston/Cambridge area -- too many colleges and universities to list. :)

    I'm also a grad student, not a parent, but I would still be more than happy to have somebody's kid over and feed him/her a square meal!

    momof3sons, use the "go advanced" option. There will be a title block. Fill it in and it's auto bold.

    I am less than 1 mile from Swarthmore (I guess that makes me a "townie") and within striking distance of many other western suburb colleges such as Villanova and St. Joe's. PM or email me and I'll give you my cell.
