Good Communication Can Be an Important Key to Your College Student’s Success

If you have read several of our posts here at College Parent Central, you’ve certainly seen by now that we feel that good communication is one of the important keys to many college students’ success.  That good communication must take place between the student and the college, between the parents and the college, but most importantly between the parents and the student.  Good communication is transactional and involves both talking and listening.

Because we feel that good communication is so important, we have several posts about improving or maximizing communication. There are some ways in which we can all improve our skills. We recommend that you take some time to read some of the following posts and think about both your own communication skills and those of your college student.  Is there room for improvement?
