Freshman or New Families

The semester is at an end, and your student is completing final projects and exams. Stressors may be peaking, and it is important that your student develops successful coping mechanisms. Western provides many seminars that help dealing with stress and studying for finals. Mixed emotions clash with your student, from relief and happiness of going home and being done with finals, to the sadness of leaving friends and activities at Western. Readjusting to home life can be hard for your student, which is why it is important to start communicating with him or her about your expectations before your student arrives home.
