Keeping in Touch With Your Child at College

As I' have previously noted (here and here), I am grappling with the mixed emotions of my older child's departure to college three weeks ago.  Thankfully, technology has made it quite easy to keep in touch with him:

Our son left for college last week also, and we are finding it a, well, mixed bag. On the one hand the campus police will not even tell you if your child lives in the dorm, let alone permit you to enter. On the other hand, we seem to receive hourly e-mails many of which seem to express the need for increased funds and relatively few of which discuss courses, learning, and other things one might have thought take place on a college campus. I did receive a rude lesson when I went to the website to inquire about Pitt basketball tickets. It seems you put your name on a waiting list, and they tell you when and if they need you. What was the joke? "Don't call us, we'll call you."
