What Supporters Can Do

We can all use words of encouragement and support every once in a while. 

What Parents/Supporters Can Do

  • Encourage your student to study and work hard, and to not fall behind in their school work.
  • Encourage your student to seek help when they need it. A trip to the College Office to speak with an Academic College Advisor is the best starting point.
  • Encourage them to ask about the university's support and mental health resources.
  • Encourage them to enjoy their intellectual and social experience at university.
  • Remind them to meet deadlines!
