This is a time for your student to learn and grown and they will ask you for advice and help. Over the next few years use these tips to help your student.
    • Make a communication plan. You are use to seeing your student at least once a day. Now you'll have to rely on phones to keep up. Make a communication plan with your student!

    • 参与! Encourage your student to join an organization. 
    • Create a plan. Make sure your student has a plan for their studies. College academics are different than high school. Make sure they have a way to know due dates and a study plan.
