Freshman Parents

Your son or daughter is going to be a first year college student. What an exciting time! It is a mix of preparation and anticipation, excitement and apprehension.


When students enter college, they are confronted with the opportunities and challenges of campus culture.  You are at a turning point in your relationship with your child.  He or she will be away from home and your rules, perhaps for the first time.  They may or may not admit it, but they feel insecure in a new social setting and want badly to fit in. 


Is your child prepared? 


You can be a big help in your child's successful transition to college life.
