This is a new chapter in your relationship with your student and the college years are a time of transition and adjustment that can be accompanied by fluctuating emotions. Your college student will still need your advice, support, and guidance but it will be in a new and different level and yes, you will have to start letting go. The college experience is a stepping stone on the path of your student’s exploration of education into a wide variety of career options that will open the doors of their futures. This is a time for you to encourage your student to try new things to help them explore different academic or social interests. Becoming involved and engaged in the Monroe College community is also the best way to help fend off home sickness and to meet new friends that share mutual interests. This is a good time to have some important conversations with your student about topics and issues that they will be experiencing. It is important for you to let them know what your thoughts, opinions, and values are regarding social behaviors and what your expectations are. Now is the time to encourage them to figure out things on their own. Student success is a team effort which includes the student, the college community and the student’s support system. I encourage you to explore the Parent Pages to get a sense of what this new chapter may bring. Feel free to contact me you if you have any questions or concerns.Saadia Del-LlanoParent Liaison(914)-firstname.lastname@example.org
