Tell us about yourself. Student? Parent?

ANNIE AGUIAR is a junior in journalism.

Our Orienter magazine is how IU Student Media welcomes incoming students to the university, but this guide is how we welcome parents to this phase as well. Whether this is your first child you’re

sending off to college or your fifth, it certainly doesn’t hurt to look for some tips and tricks to being the best college parent you can be. I moved almost 1,000 miles away from my home of Tampa, Florida, to go to IU, so my parents don’t get to visit me up at college that often. I miss them all the time and I know that ache is near-universal for both college students and their parents. Hopefully, this guide will help to combat some of

those feelings. In this guide, you’ll find our recommendations for items your student should bring, words of advice for parents from key on-campus figures, a guide on where to eat and stay during a visit and more. One last thing: Breathe. It’s going to be okay.

PARENTS SURVIVAL GUIDE 2019

Resources for keeping up with your student You’ve packed up the car, made three extra trips to Target to pick up things you forgot and fruitlessly organized a dorm room that will be messy again within the week. Now you’re standing outside your kid’s new home and hugging them tightly one last time before you make your way back home. They promised they would call every weekend, and sometimes they do, but the conversations usually consist of, “Can I have a few bucks for groceries?” or “I forgot my basketball shoes at home, could you send them?" It’s not always easy keeping up with your college student, but there are resources available to help you stay connected to the IU community from afar. Here are a few different ways parents can keep track of student and university life in Bloomington.

Family Weekend What better way to keep up with your kid than by actually visiting him or her? IU has a family weekend every year, and for 2018 it’s Sept. 20-22. Plan your visit now by reserving a hotel room (they go quickly) and buying extra tickets to that weekend’s home football game against Connecticut.

IU Notify Sometimes bad things happen. Whether it’s a tornado warning or an assault near campus, be in the know with IU Notify. Just go to one. iu.edu and search for IU Notify to sign up. Students can also opt in for these notifications to be sent via phone calls or text messages.

PARENTS SURVIVAL GUIDE 2019

Helping students with the financial aid process Making the money work for school can sometimes be hard. Even after finding ways to pay, you still might miss an important step in the set-up process. We spoke to Jackie Kennedy-Fletcher, the director of the office of student financial assistance, to help your student successfully find and keep financial aid. Papers, papers everywhere Applying to college comes with a long paper trail, but some are more important than others. Kennedy-Fletcher stressed the financial reward letter and packet is of utmost importance. You should have received this letter sometime in March. She recommends students and parents carefully read the letter and make sure they have enough

funding to cover IU. The letter includes for how much financial aid their student qualifies, how much it costs to attend IU and the leftover amount parents and students will have to pay. The letter comes in a packet with information on financial aid definitions and a guide on how to receive more financial aid. Finally, any emails or letters from the Office of the Bursar or Student Central are important for parents to read over carefully because they often require some sort of action, Kennedy-Fletcher said. Need more money? If your student didn’t receive enough financial aid to cover school and you don’t have enough to cover the bill, there are a few op-

tions. Students and parents can apply for additional student loans or private loans. However, KennedyFletcher warns parents to highly consider how much loan debt they and/or their child is willing to take on. She encourages parents and students to look into other sources of money such as employment or additional scholarships. Student Central on Union can also help advise parents and students about their best financial options. It also provides information about student and private loan options on its website under the financial aid tab, at studentcentral.indiana. edu Impending deadlines Another key aspect of financial aid is making sure you pay by the right date.

Not paying on time can result in late fees. Eventually, if the payments aren’t made, the university can put a hold on your student’s records and prevent them from enrolling in the next semester. First, it is highly recommended students apply for financial aid before March 10. This ensures you will get the most possible funding. If your student hasn’t applied yet, he or she still can, but funds are limited. The financial aid application must be filled out each year and for the 2018-19 academic year the application will be open sometime in October. The next big deadline for payments will be for the first tuition and room and board payment. This will be billed to your student’s bursar account in late August and will be due Sept. 10. All bursar

bills are due the 10th of the month. For example, if your student visits the health center in October, the bill will likely be due Nov. 10. If the payment can’t be made, students and parents can also set up a payment plan, which would change dates that payments are due. To set up a payment plan, call Student Central for help at (812) 855-6500. Deadlines are another important reason to stay on top of emails and letters, because many of the actions required will have deadlines that could have bad consequences if not met on time. Keeping tabs Finally, and possibly most importantly, parents should have their student set them up as a third party user on their bursar account. This allows parents

to monitor activity and track financial aid progress. It will also send the parents email alerts of bill payments and grades to parents upon request. To sign up as a third party user, follow the instructions below. Log in to One.IU. Read FERPA disclosure agreement (only presented first time you access page). Click I accept. Provide a username, password and first and last names for your user. Note: password must be at least eight characters, contain one number and is case sensitive. Click Bursar Balances and Bills box. Enter Third party user’s email address; confirm address by entering again. Click Save user.

Anatolia Restaurant is a Turkish restaurant located at 405 E. Fourth St. It’s one of Bloomington’s many international restaurants located along Fourth Street.

Where to eat and stay during your visit By Claire Peters clapete@iu.edu | @claire_peterss

Visiting Bloomington can be overwhelming with the amount of options for where to stay and where to eat. Thankfully there’s something for pretty much everyone. Here are some lodging options and essential restaurants suggestions to mark off your Bloomington checklist. Off- campus eating There’s a large variety of renowned restaurants just off of campus with a diverse spread to satisfy any craving. If you’re looking for classic comfort food for lunch or dinner, Nick's English Hut, BuffaLouie’s at the Gables or Dagwood's Deli & Sub Shop would be great options. These places have many options from burgers to salads to subs. All these restaurants are affordable and conveniently located on or near Kirkwood Avenue, which is a popular street very close to campus located across from Sample Gates. If you want international food during your visit, there are multiple offerings close to campus as well. Along Fourth Street, a block over from Kirkwood Avenue, there are eight

international restaurants to choose from. There’s Tibetan food at Anyetsang's Little Tibet, Thai food at Siam House, Turkish food at Anatolia and Burmese food at Burma Garden. Early morning visits are a great occasion to eat at places such as FARMbloomington, Village Deli or the Runcible Spoon, which offer breakfast and lunch only a walking distance from campus. These places can get pretty crowded, so on weekends it’s best to call ahead and reserve seating for you and your family. Both the Runcible Spoon and FARMbloomington take reservations, but Village Deli does not. On- campus While you’re visiting, it’s always fun to take advantage of IU’s beautiful campus and see all the places where your student spends so much time during the semester. The university offers Sunday campus tours that you can sign up for online at the IU Visitor Information Center website. There are also various places to eat on campus if you aren’t looking to make the trek into town. With 30 locations on campus, every dining hall

will take student meal plans such as CrimsonCash or IBUCKS as well as credit cards and cash. Where to stay One of the most convenient places to stay is the Biddle Hotel in the Indiana Memorial Union, since it is centrally located on campus and near Kirkwood Avenue. Although the location is nice, sometimes the prices aren’t. Depending on the weekend, the rooms cost $90-$280 a night. If you want to save money, off-campus hotels such as Graduate Bloomington, Hilton Garden Inn and Hyatt Place are good options if you have a car or don’t mind paying for a ride into campus. Some of these hotels are on Kirkwood Avenue. If you want to save even more money, an Airbnb is the way to go. Compared to the Biddle, this option could save you almost $100 a night especially on busy weekends such as IU Family Weekend and the week of Little 500. Although Airbnbs are a little less predictable, the key is to plan ahead to guarantee yourself the most options and affordability.

Q&A: Parents talk sending daughter off to IU By Emily Isaacman eisaacma@iu.edu | @emilyisaacman

I'm the oldest of three siblings, and I chose a school far from my home in California. Not only did my parents have to navigate the unknowns of sending their first child to college, but they had to figure out what that meant across the country. I talked to my Mom, Allison, and my Dad, Drew, about the experience and advice they'd share with other parents. Answers have been edited for brevity and clarity. What was the biggest

surprise when I left for college? Allison: The biggest surprise was how I wasn’t upset when I dropped you off because I knew you were in such a good place that they would take care of you. I wasn’t prepared for when I got home and you weren’t there. Drew: The biggest surprise when you left for college was how much I missed seeing you around the house and how ready you were to live independently. What do you wish you knew before I left for school? A: I wish I knew how

to understand what you needed in school in terms of academic requirements. I’ve been surprised at the gen-eds you’ve still had to take even going in with all the AP credits you had. I think for how large Indiana is, I’ve been completely shocked at how personal and how responsive your professors have been. D: I wish I knew Southwest was going to discontinue their direct flights to Indianapolis. What advice would you give another parent whose oldest child is leaving for college?

PARENTS SURVIVAL GUIDE 2019 A: I would tell them that it’s the coming home that’s the hardest — knowing that they’re not there because the family dynamic does change. But know that they’re in a really good place, and take comfort in knowing that they’re really happy. Even on the days when they call and they’re sad, you know it’s only temporary because they’re still in a really good place. D: I would tell them to worry less and trust their kids more because everything will turn out OK. The breadth of opportunities at Indiana allows your child to do whatever they wish, and that doesn't have to be known in any way before they go to school.

Did the family dynamic change, and do you have advice on how to deal with that? D: The balance of power shifted to the men in the house, and it became an increasingly tough battle for the leftover female. A: It’s tough because each family definitely has a different dynamic. I think I’ve had to learn to speak up more because I have one less person to be on my side. When it’s three-to-two, it’s easier to get the other three to come over. When it’s three-to-one, it’s a little harder. As a parent from out-ofstate, is there anything you would tell another out-ofstate parent?

9 A: I actually liked the fact that you’re out of state because I felt that it forced you to handle situations that if you lived closely, you wouldn’t. You would come home. But by having you out of state, when you got sick or you had a problem, you didn’t just run home. You had to figure it out. And while it’s hard because you can’t just come home when you want, you just have to be organized and say, OK, these are the times I’m going to come home, and in between those times, we’re just going to have to work through the distance. D: It's an unbelievably warm and welcoming environment. No matter where they're from, they will be positively surprised.

Q&A: Younger siblings talk life without sister News editor Emily Isaacman spoke with her two younger brothers about life at home after she left for IU in 2017 Do you feel like the house changed?

By Emily Isaacman eisaacma@iu.edu | @emilyisaacman

What was it like when I left for college?

When I left San Diego, California for school at IU, my youngest brother was 13, and my middle brother was 15. I knew a lot would change in our lives while I was gone. But with the help of Snapchat streaks, Facetime, GIF texts and funny Instagram videos, we’re still close, maybe even closer than before. I talked to Max, 17, and Zach, 14, about what it’s been like to watch their older sister leave for college. Answers have been edited for brevity and clarity.

Zach: It was very sad because you were a big part of my life. And not seeing you every day was sad. Max: It was weird, not having you in the house. Like, dinners and stuff — instead of five people, there were four. I feel like that just takes some getting used to. But then we still talk and stuff over Snapchat and phone calls and whatnot. So I feel like the biggest part was just the missing part of the house.

M: Not a ton. I feel like it stayed pretty similar. Z: Yeah, a little bit. Especially with three guys and only one girl. It was kind of more of like a guys’ — like a bachelor pad, if that makes sense. It was like a bachelor pad? (editor’s/older sister’s note: Zach has seen “How I Met Your Mother” a ridiculous amount of times and likely did not understand what bachelor pad meant in this context) Z: It was, like, much more immature? Like, the level of

On that note, has watching my experience in college changed your thoughts about college at all? Z: A little bit. Even if you do go in with a set thing, you can always change it. You can always change your major or whatever. It doesn’t have to be set in stone. M: You know, before you had gone to Indiana, I had only thought about Southern California schools. But seeing the perks of a different school in a different environment in a different part of the coun-

try kind of made me open up and think about other schools that I wouldn’t have thought about before. What advice would you give another person whose older sibling is going off to college? Z: It’s a sad time. You just have to figure out ways to get through it. M: Make sure you talk to them because they might feel lonely even if you don’t know it. They might be more homesick than you realize. Any advice for parents? Z: It’s a sad time. Just try to stay strong so the person who is going off to college doesn’t get scared. But still have that love factor there. M: Don’t be afraid because your kid is most likely going to have a really good

time. And probably if he or she is leaving, he or she probably wants to leave. So don’t be worried about your kid because if they’re moving across the country, it’s probably for a reason that you might not have thought about.

Do you feel like with me in college, you’re excited for college? You still have a while, Z… Z: Yeah, I feel much more open-minded to college. I really want to go now. Seeing how much fun you’re having makes me want to go.

Ways to help your

homesick student By Claire Peters clapete@iu.edu | @claire_peterss

Living on your own for the first time can be tumultuous for your student, especially with all the changes occuring at the same time. Moving away can have varying effects on students. Some will be fine on their own and others will need more support to help with missing home. Here are some ways to help your student if he or she needs it. Being there for them and communicating often with your student is a great first step. How will you know he or she is struggling if you don’t talk about it in the first place? Reassuring students they are not alone in this experience can help them open up about it and take their first steps to dealing with this

feeling. Finding out what they are struggling with or what specifically they are missing can help parents be more efficient in solving it. Encourage them to get out of their room and talk to other students about it. Hearing about other people’s similar experiences would help them feel less alone and maybe help them learn what they can do to help them ease the feeling. Socializing and getting involved will help them keep busy and help them feel more at home in their new place on campus. They could do this by talking to people on their floor or visiting the beINvolved website to find groups and organizations to join. Sending them care packages from home can remind them their parents are thinking of them. This could

just be some treats and gifts, but also some things they might be missing, such as local snacks or pictures of home. It’s beneficial to be there for your student and to help him or her through difficult times, but it’s good to create a healthy balance to help him or her gain independence. While students might need someone to talk to and be there, they don’t need a helicopter parent calling every five minutes. Homesickness is very common among new students, so thankfully there are a lot of resources for students who are having a difficult time. If it becomes more serious and leads to anxiety or depression, students can contact Counseling and Psychological Services at the IU Health Center.

Words of advice for parents The IDS spoke with some key figures on campus to ask about the advice they would give to parents of incoming students. Doug Bauder — Director of the LGBTQ+ Culture Center “Parents, are you worried that your son or daughter may be harassed on campus if they identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender? Are you worried that your daughter or son may discover that their sexual orientation or gender identity is different from what you assume it to be? The LGBTQ+ Culture Center will be there for you or your daughter or son. Check out our web page, https://lgbtq.indiana.edu, or call us at 812-855-4252 for support or information.”

YOU PAID YOUR STUDENT ACTIVITY FEE–

SO COME OUT AND PLAY! All IU students with a valid ID have access to RS facilities and programs. You’ve already paid your student activity fee–now enjoy the benefits: • Two Facilities–SRSC & Intramural Center provide unlimited options! • 80+ weekly group exercise sessions • Multiple cardio/circuit & strength gyms • Two recreational swimming pools • Racquetball/squash/wallyball courts • Basketball & volleyball courts • Walking/jogging/running track • Table tennis & badminton courts • Equipment checkout & short-term lockers

Idalene Fay Kesner — Dean of the Kelley School of Business “While there are important times to be involved in your student’s college experience, it’s also important to step back and let them handle certain challenges on their own. This is a very important part of the college maturation process. By encouraging their students to tackle key decisions, parents will prepare their children to be independent thinkers and problem solvers, which in turn sets them up for even more success in the future.”

TWO RECREATIONAL SPORTS FACILITIES,

UNLIMITED OPTIONS! INTRAMURAL CENTER • Cardio/circuit and strength gyms • 9 racquetball/wallyball courts, squash courts & table tennis • 10 basketball/volleyball courts

Rabbi Sue Silberberg — Executive Director of the Helene G. Simon Hillel Center “Dear parents, you are about to embark on a very exciting journey with your student. IU is a fantastic university. Your student will learn much in the classroom experiences but even more from the life lessons and experiences gained outside the classroom. They will always look to you for guidance, advice and support. Be there for them to celebrate their successes and to catch them and help them navigate their failures. Most importantly, continue to guide them as they take this next very important step in their lives. Congratulations!”

• Royer pool and diving well • Indoor walking/jogging/running track • Two multipurpose gyms • Open use dance studio • Group Exercise/Yoga & Pilates Studio • Free equipment check-out

STUDENT RECREATIONAL SPORTS CENTER (SRSC) • Cardio/circuit and strength gyms • More-private strength & cardio studios

James C. Wimbush— Vice President for Diversity, Equity, and Multicultural Affairs

• Seven racquetball/wallyball courts, two squash courts, & table tennis

“To the parents and guardians of incoming students, congratulations! As your children begin to acquaint themselves with Indiana University, I’m certain you’ll experience a rush of emotions. This is an exciting time. It’s only natural to feel thankful, joyous and enthusiastic, as well as fearful, heavyhearted and anxious when you say goodbye and let your children embark on this new journey.

• Five basketball/volleyball courts

Though there will be ups and downs throughout the academic year, know that all students are supported and encouraged to broaden their horizons and do their best work while at IU.”

What to have delivered to your student THINGS TO SEND TO STUDENTS

THINK TWICE BEFORE SENDING THESE Decorations/knick-knacks Although additional accessories or holiday décor might seem like a cute idea, it becomes a bit of a hassle when its use is worn out, and it can end up taking up more storage or space in an already small dorm room. Coffee All academic building cafes and campus C-stores have fresh brewed coffee for purchase with meal points. Febreze You might be afraid your

student’s not doing laundry, but Febreze is sold in the C-stores, too. They also sell detergent, dryer sheets, bleach and other cleaning supplies students will likely need. Try instead Tide-to-Go pens for stains, or a bottle of your student’s favorite cologne or perfume.

Instant Food Items While you might have visions of your student surviving off Ramen noodles and Easy Mac, there’s no need to send these. They’re available for purchase with meal points from the campus C-stores. Try instead Baked goods or Goldfish crackers. Remember perishable foods may take some time to arrive, so choose the fastest shipping possible.

Deck of cards You guessed it — sold in the C-stores. Try instead Uno, Catch Phrase or Cards Against Humanity.
