Intro Week

<p>D's school has an extra cost intro week this summer. She does not want to go as she is starting to miss family and friends. I would rather save some moneys.</p>

<p>There is a mandatory several days prior to school intro for all freshmen. Is this enough or should she do the week too?</p>

<p>Never heard of this, but it sounds like a potential waste of time. Most schools do a good job of orientation in the week or so prior to classes starting.</p>

<p>A bunch of schools (including colleges) now do these "pre-programs" (often off campus). It gives the kids a chance to make a few friends before school starts. If your daughter doesn't want to go and you'd rather save money, I think you can skip it--a lot of other students will be skipping it as well.</p>
