Welcoming College Students Home from College

Welcoming College Students Home from College

     What should parents and families expect when their student comes home from college for
the summer?  Families should expect an adjustment, both the parents and the college student.  Parents should be prepared to reevaluate boundaries, and students shouldn’t expect the same amount of freedom they had at school.  College is different for everyone. Some find it easy and exciting, while others are more anxious about it.

     Parents should take time to understand how their child is feeling and how college is going, and reinforce you have confidence in who they are and that they are there to support them.
