University Parent Shares Tips on Transitioning from High School to College on #CampusChat

If you have a college-bound senior, it’s time to get ready for the next step: college. It’s a new step in your teen’s life and an emotional one for both of you. What can you expect over the next few months? How can you prepare for move-in day? What do you need to know to help your student handle this transition?

University Parent wants to help prepare you for every aspect of the transition: from summer emotions, to dorm shopping, to move-in day, to dealing with the empty nest.

University Parent helps parents connect with other parents, share insights, and help with positive reinforcement during this transitional time. At University Parent you can follow links to connect with other parents and post questions and get answers–from experts and other parents who are going through the same transition.
