Staying Safe and Healthy in College – A Roundup of Helpful Posts

Perhaps one of the most basic things we think about when we send our student away to college is her health and safety.  Yes, we want our student to succeed academically, make friends, be engaged, and prepare for a career; but first and foremost, we want to know that our student will be safe and be able to stay healthy – both physically and mentally.  But it is not always easy to do this when we are miles away and may not see our student for weeks.

Here are a few posts with suggestions about ways to help your student think about staying healthy and safe.  Share some of these ideas with your college student – or soon-to-be college student.
