Advice for new students:
Make the most of your college experience …participate in campus events, join a club or organization, explore new ideas, ask for help when needed, take advantage of campus resources, and connect with your faculty and staff - we’re here to help!
Advice for families/friends of new students:
During your student’s transition to campus, there may be moments of frustration, anger, disappointment, or confusion. There will also be times of great joy, satisfaction, hope, and anticipation. Do your best to support and encourage your son/daughter through all these changes. Together, we can help your student in their journey to becoming an independent, responsible young adult.
