What have Parents and Families have said About our Program:

  • Overall, the information provided at the orientation was very informative for both our student and ourselves. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
  • I thought the academic/course review was the most important and helpful segment to take away from the day - especially after we met back up with our son and headed home.  Having a better understanding of the course selection process and requirements really helped us have a great conversation with him because we understood the specifics of how the students were selecting courses. 
  • The Bentley staff was warm, welcoming and caring. Keep up this spirit!
  • Parent orientation was a very good experience.  It was helpful for parents to become part of the Bentley family.
  • Wonderful experience.  Great way to introduce parents to each other and share our dreams and fears for our kids. I feel much less anxious about the upcoming fall.  Thank you. 
  • Enjoyed the program quite a bit.  Feel that my son has picked an awesome and appropriate college for his needs.  Feel welcomed to inquire about anything that might concern me.
  • All of the morning sessions were highly informative, each of the speakers were very clearly familiar with their topics and demonstrated a passion for Bentley, the students, families, and co-workers.
