Prepping for School in the Fall
Earlier this spring we posted an article titled “Going to Boarding School?” covering things that you need to think about and do as you prepare to head off to school in the fall.
Over the next 10 weeks we’ll highlight tips from the article through a new blog series- “Prepping for the Fall.”
This week and next we’ll make suggestions for things that you need to be doing/thinking about all summer:
Get Along With Your Parents
Believe it or not, you will miss them. Their love and support has gotten you to this point. Treat them well.
Jot Down a List of Questions
What do you want to know about daily life? Many schools assign a “big sister” or “big brother” who contacts you in August. Your questions will give your give you something to talk about and won’t sound dumb on the phone (or in any social network setting)
Find out if your school uses or encourages any social networking tools- facebook, Twitter, etc.- for new students.
