As November arrives and we enter the season of holidays, your college student is well past the mid-point of the semester. If your student was a new, first-year student this fall, she is probably feeling that she is past the transition period. If your student is not a new college student, the mid-point of another semester is one more step closer to graduation.
Now that the end of the semester may be in sight, the hard work of the semester also settles heavily on students’ shoulders. Students may also be facing the consequences of some of the choices that they made earlier in the semester, and may need to make some decisions now about the future. This is a good time to take stock, look back, and move forward.
