    Jennifer, there is no such thing as a stupid question in this forum. "DS" stands for Dear Son.

    Here is a link to a long list of other acronyms and their meanings:

    Congratulations to your son, and Happy Holidays to you and your family.

    Name

    You also should consider changing you forum name. Upperclassmen view the forum and it is wise to be incognito. Especially during Indoc and Plebe year.

    In general, it's probably a good idea to maintain anonymity on any public forum. There are a lot of nuts out there. (Not on THIS forum of course.:biggrin:)

    Don't apologize

    Stupidity is NOT asking the question when you don't know something. I am the stupid one. I have been on KP campus for 6 years and always wondered what DS stood for. Obviously we all had made up our own definition for it. Thanks for asking, you have cleared something up for all of us.

    Welcome to the wonderful team of parents who make up a living moving force at KP. Looking forward to your DS arriving on campus.
