The First Year

Your son or daughter is beginning an exciting journey. The transition to college often marks a new chapter in the student's life and in your relationship. This developmental period involves many changes for students and their families. You may find yourself sharing much of the excitement, frustration, disappointment and sense of accomplishment that can be a part of students' first year in college.
