"As a child of the ultimate helicopter parents, I can assure you the growth your child will experience here will be invaluable and unlike anything they can achieve elsewhere. So don’t be scared, step back and trust this wonderful place. And I’ll let you in on a secret: We may never admit it, but the more time that we spend away, the more we enjoy the time we spend with you. A win-win!"

"Always remember that it is okay if your student makes a mistake. They will make a mistake, and that is a part of the college experience. The important part is to make sure they learn from their mistakes because that is how they will make the most of their time here at LSU. Also, always be there for them when they are stressed out or feeling down because a phone call from parents goes a long way."

"Your tiger is in for the experience of a lifetime. Although they are leaving home to become and adult, your baby will always be your baby. Make sure you and your tiger are constantly building communication, trust, and respect."

Kim Jalilian

Parent Orientation Leader: College of Engineering

"Take initiative and stay involved. College kids can be forgetful and as much as we want you to know what’s going on, we may forget to tell you!"

Lauren Hampton

Parent Orientation Leader: Human Sciences and Education

Hometown: Shreveport, Louisiana

Classification: Senior

Major: Kinesiology concentrating on being a Physician’s Assistant

"Encourage your child through their struggles and be that listening ear your student may need from time to time. Start to understand when your students need to be parented and when they need their “mom & dad” because they’ll miss them even if they don’t say it. College can be tough and you’re their biggest support system through their next years here at LSU."

Her advice to parents is to just be supportive of your students. This is a very new experience for them and having your support can be the best thing to help them get through it. Just a few supportive words letting them know you are there if they need anything or that you are proud of them can really make all the difference.

Mel Cotchery

Parent Orientation Leader: E.J. Ourso College of Business

Hometown: Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Classification: Sophomore

Major: Business Management

"Relax and breathe. Everything will be fine! Your student is getting a great education, they are safe, and they are just a phone call away. They’ll miss you just as much as you’ll miss them!"

Paige Picou

Parent Orientation Leader: University Center for Advising and Counseling

Hometown: Houma, Louisiana

Classification: Junior

Major: Psychology

"Try to be there for your student in whatever way possible! College can be stressful at times for students, and sometimes simply listening to your student vent during a phone call or guiding them through a sticky situation can help them much more than you may think!"

Stacey Alhemeyer

Parent Orientation Leader: Manship School of Mass Communication

Hometown: New Orleans, Louisiana

Classification: Junior

Major: Child & Family Studies minoring in Psychology

"If your student is calling you to complain about a problem, they don’t necessarily want you to fix the problem, sometimes they just want someone to listen. College is the time for self-development. The best thing a parent can do during this time is support their student."
