Roundup of Helpful Posts for August 2011
As a college parent, you are trying to learn many things about the world of college, trying to help your student make a successful transition – either to the first year of college or to a subsequent year of college or even a new college, trying to determine how you can be most helpful as part of the college equation, and trying to remember that this is a time of transition for you as well. There seems to be so much to try to take in and to juggle.
As we begin this busy month just before your college student heads off to school, we offer a collection of posts that may be most helpful at this busy and sometimes stressful time of preparation and leave-taking.
Be sure to check out our Roundup for August 2009 and August 2010 for more helpful information for this time of year. This current Roundup contains posts written in the past year, since last August
You may find some posts more helpful than others – and some of what you consider helpful may depend on your individual student and where she is in her college journey. Take some time to read and review any of these posts which seem to speak to you, and you will be well-armed for the month ahead.
