Getting Ready for College: What can you expect?

College is an exciting and anxious time of transition for many young adults and their families. The one thing I can guarantee you for your first year is that you will experience many changes both in your daily life and in yourself. When you return home after your first year, it is likely someone will say to you, “You’ve changed.” That is a good thing if you are changing and developing into the mature adult that your families have worked so hard to help you become. I’ve seen thousands of students in my career so far and I can tell you that college is what you make of it. Making the smart choices of studying, attending and participating in classes, seeking tutoring or help before you are in academic trouble, getting involved positively in the campus community, actively trying and learning how to live with, work with, and enjoy people who are very different from you, are some of the keys to getting the most out of your college education. 

College is expensive and often incurs hardships on you and your family. I urge you to never forget what the cost of giving you a stronger future is- the sacrifices you and your family make. Most of all however, remember that your presence in college is not for your parents’ future- it is for yours and ultimately you decide what you will get out of it.

 In the coming months, Residential Life will be sending you more information regarding the housing application and the housing process for new, incoming students. It is different than what current students do!

Sincerely,

Ursula Herz, Director of Residential Life and Associate Dean of Students
