As if the reassurance of Brown's outstanding administration hasn't been enough, your photographer confirmed that our one-and-only college freshman would survive the home-to-college transition ("Welcome," Elms, September/October). It was such a treat to see Annika's smile on page 15 beaming at me on that fall day when I opened my first issue of the BAM. Thanks for helping new-to-college parents through the letting-go transition. I look forward to the next issue.
