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.
