Sometimes it isn’t until the degrees have been awarded and the dorms cleared out that students have time to catch their breath and reflect on what they most appreciated receiving from home during their college years.
To write this post, I spoke with current students and recent grads, and what I love about this list is how simple most of these memories are. We support our daughters and sons in so many ways, big and small, during the college years and they don’t always have time to thank us. So, here is a collective, “Thanks, Mom. Thanks, Dad. I love you, too.”
