3 ways to help your freshman

  1. Be a good coach. Your advice carries a lot of weight with your student. Remind them about on-campus support services, like tutoring centers.
  2. Encourage involvement. Student groups, intramural sports, organizations—all are great opportunities to make new friends on campus.
  3. Send care packages. They're awesome and help with homesickness. Find residence hall addresses here.
