What Students Say to Parents

  • College is not just going to class—I need to have fun, too!
  • Make plans to come to Pitt for Family Weekend and visit me on campus when you can.  I'm excited about college and I want to share it with you!
  • Care packages, letters--even email--are very much appreciated, especially during the holidays, when I might be missing home and family a little more than usual.
  • Trust me!  Listen when I call with a problem, but let me try to handle it myself.  I need your support and encouragement, but I also need to learn from my own mistakes.  And don't worry; I'll remember the values and morals you instilled in me.  I might, however, forget how to do laundry!
  • Let me try new things.  I might change everything from my major to my hair color, but I'm still the person you know and love.
