As parents, you’re all Gaiters too! 

University is an exhilarating time for students and their families. As a parent, you play a key role in making this transition a smooth one, and helping to support your son or daughter’s success once they’re here. As your child experiences university life, the BU Alumni Association is here to offer you information and opportunities to connect with other parents and members of our community from wherever you are around the world. Welcome to the Bishop’s family – embrace the purple!
