Quote:  "Make sure you don't forget where you came from. Yes, you will make friends at college, but don't forget your family who supports you. Give them a call, Facetime them, send them a card, or do something during the semester to let them know you are thinking about them. You will miss them so much and you will be glad to hear their voice and they will be even happier to hear yours!"
