It’s that time of year when we can’t quite decide whether to look backwards at the year that is just ending or to look ahead at the year about to begin. We probably need to do a little bit of both. Looking back gives us some perspective to look ahead and think about our goals and plans for the New Year based on where we’ve come.
For the past 5 years, we’ve taken time to share some of our reflections about the College Parent Central year just ending. We like the tradition and so we’re taking time to look back at 2017.
We invite you to take a few minutes to reflect with us, and to think about how you view your role as college parent. Are you just starting your journey? Have you grown into the role over the past year? Where might you and your college student go next year?
We shared 47 articles in 2017. We hope they spoke to issues and ideas that are important to college parents. But although some topics change and evolve from year to year, our most popular articles haven’t changed in the five years that we have been reflecting. Parents continue to seek information when their student is having difficulty.
