The Family Transition

Attending college can be an exciting and challenging time for families and the experience is different for each student.

Students are not the only ones who are faced with change when they choose to attend college. When a family member attends college, the entire family experiences change. Students find newfound freedoms and move towards independence.

As your student becomes independent, former roles may need to be shift as students balance their new responsibilities. Families may learn new ways to support their college student. In this new role you join the university in supporting your student’s success.
