Don’t eat in the dining halls, because if you do then your parents will see that the food is healthy and not that bad and then they’ll give you less money. Instead, have them take you to supper somewhere!
Don’t say hello to most of your friends, because most of your friends are embarrassing.
Don’t go out with your parents. It’s never actually fun in practice.
Don’t get into meaningless fights with your Dad. It’s just not worth it! You guys love each other, so try to remember that.
Don’t go to Sushi on Chapel, because you might get violently ill.
If you have a sibling at Yale, don’t make your parents choose which one they love more.
Finally, don’t get your hopes up because Parent’s Weekend can be lame.
