August Transitions for Families

Welcome Families to the August Transitions Newsletter!

Helping your student to continue to mature is a goal we share with you. While many parents experience anxiety when they hear of a roommate squabble or a loud neighbor, it's important for your student to learn how to handle these situations. Some parents want a perfect environment, but those rarely exist. The road to adulthood can be both exciting and daunting. We hope to work with you to assist your student through graduation.

In this issue of Transitions, you'll learn suggestions on how to stay in contact with your Ball State student, as well as advice on talking about tough subjects, how to help your student from home, and time managment. In addition, we've included some helpful tips on making move in successful (and green!).

We hope you have a successful move-in!
