College is a time of transition. There is much discussion about the student’s transition to freshman year and to college in general. But in many ways, college is a time of continual transition. Your student moves into college, into and out of dorms and apartments, into (and sometimes out of) majors, and move on up the ladder of college class rank. For some students the transition includes moving on to different colleges or to alternative paths. Finally, students begin the transition out of college and into career.
Recognizing that this is a time of continual transition and change will help you support and encourage your student as he navigates his way through college. We’ve included here some information about some of the transitions your student – and you – may face.
