It’s a conflicted feeling. The culmination of years of patience and support, a parent’s daughter or son has achieved the remarkable feat of being accepted to college. Pride radiates in heavy doses as they glow with the knowledge that their child is on track to follow their dreams and take the next steps toward adulthood! But, while the prospect of one’s child attaining self-sufficiency (along with the maturity to finally do their own darn laundry) is surely a nice one, the thought of losing touch with their world can be devastating. At USC, however, we understand that releasing the reins is no easy task – that’s where Maria Riley comes in.
