Give Your College-bound Student a Little Reminder of WNY

Give Your College-bound Student a Little Reminder of WNY

You’ve visited the campus, paid the tuition, purchased the necessary books for the fall semester, bought new clothes and packed the necessary dorm room supplies. It’s official: your son or daughter is college bound. And while it may not happen to your child, parents should not be surprised if their student suffers from a little homesickness, especially if it’s his or her first time away from the comforts of home.

Should you receive such a call, there are things a parent can do, such as encouraging your child to get out of their room and spend some time with other students who may be experiencing the same feelings. And, there’s nothing like getting a package from home — one that features a little taste of Western New York — that lets your child know that they’re never really far away.
