Feedback from parents about Parent Orientation

--  "More than met my expectations.  Excellent Orietnation program."


--  "The Orientation was so helpful and beyond what I expected.  I am thrilled that my son will be attending Purchase.  I saw him several times in passing on Friday and the joy in his face made me cry."


--  "The Orientation staff was very friendly & helpful."


--  "Based on the Orientation, it seems to be a terrific opportunity to learn and grow with lots of resources, surprisingly nurturing atmosphere, especially for a state school."


--  "The Orientation exceeded my highest expectations--from the very moment I arrived-when two incredibly smiling and friendly students in lime green T-shirts enthusiastically pointed us in the right direction to the Orientation parking lot and registration.  Things got even better as the program unfolded.  The Orientation was extremely informative, but the caring atmosphere you create was the real introduction to SUNY Purchase-I know my 'student' is in very good hands, and it is up to her to make the best use of the resources at hand-with the gentle and caring guidance from the staff."
