Adjusting to College
College is the time for exploration, experimentation and discovery. As young adults, their challenge will be to define who they are, develop meaningful relations and to find a purpose in life. Throughout their childhood and adolescence, you were a constant companion whether it was holding their hands as they took their first steps, helping them with school or comforting them when they had fights with friends.
Now it is time to send your students forth to find their own paths into young adulthood. Unlike their childhood, you may not always be there to pick your students up when they fall or stumble. All you can do is be ready with an open mind and heart and to guide them when they reach out for help.
