Freshman or New Families
The cold weather is starting to give way to spring, and your student is developing enthusiasm for warm weather again. It might be that you feel you have less influence on your student as he or she is a few months from completing his or her first year of college. Your student will become more autonomous, but do not be discouraged, he or she will look to you for advice and support. If your student plans to live in the residence halls next year, which is required for all freshman and sophomores, it is time for him or her to renew a housing contract on STARS.
Midterms take place during this time, which means early academic warning grades will be available. Spring break also takes place in March. The weeks before spring break can be tough because some students may attend more to vacation plans rather than coursework. It is essential that your student maintain focus.
