College move-in days are very emotional for everyone involved. The few weeks that remain are the last of the lives students and their parents have lived until this moment. In just several weeks, the high school student will become a college student and the high school parents will become college parents and some, even empty-nesters. It is not easy to say goodbye for the parents but neither is it for the student. A much better word would be to say "So long" and give a huge hug and a great kiss...for all will be well!
