My college son

My 20 yr old son just finished his 2nd year of college, 4.0 both years. Very smart, doesn't drink or smoke, no drugs. Stays home. But now, he met a foreign exchange student this semester and started hanging out with her and 2 others. I still don't know everything. He doesn't tell us everything and comes home times other than what he says he will arrive. We can't always get him to text or call much and I don't know what to do. I do know they hang out at the college dorm and DC. Lots of pamphlets of church in the car. Should I be worried and what rules should I apply?

He's 20. I understand he is still in college....but he is 20. He's an adult. What you could do is let him know that while he lives under your roof, he needs to let you know approximately when he will be home and stick to each, just out of respect for the other adults living in your home. But I don't see why he needs to tell you everything. He is an adult and should be able to make some choices of his own without having you breathing down his neck all the time.
