Your Student's New Normal
Whether this is your first student off to college or your last, understand that homesickness is common among most first-year students. The best thing to do is listen to them and offer support. Beyond that, encourage your student to connect with other students and to get involved in campus life – it’s not only important in combatting homesickness, but it’s also shown to significantly increase student success and satisfaction.
