Dear BU Family Members,

Welcome to the Boston University Parents Program!

As part of?the Dean of Students’ Office, we are committed to being here for you and your student throughout the BU journey. At Boston University we want parents, guardians, family members, and friends to be engaged with and well informed about the University. We encourage parents/guardians to? follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

We also invite parents/guardians to attend local receptions and we provide opportunities to volunteer on behalf of the University in your hometowns. We can be reached at (617) 358-1187 or at parents@bu.edu. If your student begins the BU experience in January and you have questions, please contact Robin Karp, Chairman of Outreach, Parents Leadership Council and parent of a January program alumna, at robinkarp1@gmail.com.

If you are planning ahead for Move-In Weekend (Saturday, August 31-Monday, September 2, 2019), you’ll find a list of hotel room blocks in the Boston area courtesy of the Parents Program. We hope you enjoy your visit!

Thank you,

BU Parents Program
