Orientation for Parents and Students

<p>I'm attending the Orientation June 13 and I'm wondering what exactly goes on during those few days.</p>

<p>Is it better to bring a parent or not?
I'm planning on bring my mother but I wouldnt like it if she just stood there doing nothing so are there some kind of activities planned for the parents while the students are doing other things?</p>

<p>Thanks</p>

<p>Definitely attend with a parent if you can. The parents have their own program to attend, and its excellent. Plus, the parent food is much better -- they bring out the good stuff!</p>

<p>You will be with your parents for a few hours on Sunday, and you will not see them at all again until the end of orientation on Tuesday afternoon.</p>

<p>Thanks for the replies, and do we all stay in hotels in the cities? or how does that work?</p>

<p>You (the pre-froshers) stay on campus in the dorms. Your parents need to find lodging elsewhere.</p>

<p>If it's this hot in the Boston area next weekend am I okay wearing shorts? What is appropriate dress for parents? Should I treat it like an information session/tour?</p>

<p>yes, shorts for parents are fine. Some guys are in jeans and hoodies and some in slacks, but those looked like locals who took time off from work to drop by. By the last day, some mom's have even lost make-up.</p>
