Welcome parents and families!
Sending your child off to college is a big step for both the student and the students family, but the following are a few ways to help your child make the most of the college experience:
- Give your student the freedom and independence he/she needs to grow into the college experience. Your student may still be living under your roof, but now is a great time to talk about any changing rules and expectations.
- Help your student make his/her studies the primary focus in life when school is in session. Keep jobs, family responsibilities, and social life in a healthy balance that supports the student's educational goals. Encourage your student to consciously manage time, energy, and money.
- Encourage your student to get to know his/her professors outside of class, to make use of all campus support personnel and services, and to get involved in a sport or activity on campus. These connections will help a student persist in achieving his/her educational goals.
