College Q & A

TimeApril 20, 2012

from:Allen, Myra

to:All Students

I’m planning on coming home from college every weekend to see my friends and family, but my teacher doesn’t think that’s a good idea.  What do you think? 

I think your teacher is right, and I think you’ll feel differently before Christmas.  Either way, you need to start connecting with your new environment, get to know new people, do new things…  This doesn’t mean leaving behind the people at home, only adding to your support system and expanding your experience.  Students who ‘get connected’ at their new schools are more likely to stay in school and be more successful there.
