Reaction to the Virginia Tech shootings

A parent writes:

"How tragic the news in Virginia! Those poor families.
I can't stop thinking about my student. I trust that he is in a safe environment.
I had to email right away to comfort my own fears. "

Transferring from a community college--advice??

A parent writes:

HI Our son will be transferring next Fall to the U of M campus from a small community college. He is very outgoing and determined. We are excited for his transition and new challenges, yet would like to hear from other parents who have had children experience the transfer process. Any tips or words of wisdom? Thanks in advance, Dianne and Greg Johnson
