The first year experience and subsequent years present a series of unique challenges that affect your student’s growing independence and maturity. You and your student will make adjustments as you learn to manage the changes in this life transition. Some students may experience few problems such as difficulties with time management or task completion while others find the process to be more difficult and have trouble transitioning into new friendships and developing autonomy or a sense of self. These changes are especially troublesome when away from the usual comforts of home and family. The provided links offer tips on how to ensure you and your student ease the transition of going off to college.
