Roundup of Helpful Posts for February

Your college student is settling in to the second semester of the year.  Although February may seem to be a relatively quiet month, as many of us hibernate for the winter, it may actually be a busy time for your college student.  Whether your student is in her first year of school or further along in her college career, the second semester of the year has its own rhythms.  Most students are already settled in their rooms or apartments, clubs and activities may be in full swing. However, courses are probably new and there is a feeling of a fresh start.  As the semester progresses, students begin to look toward next year – higher status, possible study abroad or internship, perhaps even graduation.

Last February we did a roundup of posts from last year that may be helpful to both you and your student at this point in the academic year.  You may view our roundup for last February here.  It contains many helpful articles.  This post contains posts we’ve written since last February that may be helpful at this particular time of year.

If you haven’t already done so, we’d recommend also reviewing our roundup for December and maybe even November.  This is a good time to take stock, look back, and move forward.
