It is possible that your college student will be staying on campus for the summer – either for summer classes, a summer job, research or an internship. But for most college students, the end of the spring term means returning home for the summer, or at least heading off campus. Your student is anxious and can’t wait to get off campus, but before he fills up that car and heads home, there are some things that he should do. A little time spent now can make the return next fall go much more smoothly.
Talk to your student about how he is wrapping up the semester. It may not be easy for him to think past those final exams and papers, but suggest that he plan ahead to summer and to next fall and anticipate some of the things that will help.
