Student Stories

As students begin their new chapter of life at college, they are often faced with a mixture of excitement, nerves, and new opportunities. However, they will also be faced with new challenges and choices. As your student's biggest supporter, they will likely turn to you when they are unsure of their next steps. Hear these four students share stories from their transition to college and overcame challenges of their own. Know that while your student makes choices about how to approach these new situations, you will also be making new choices about how much to step in and help them versus how much to help them trust their decisions and use tools to navigate challenges independently.
