It’s hard to believe, but we are very close to the end of the Fall 2014 semester! For many students this is a time to celebrate, but for others it can be a time to panic. Missing work, last minute projects, papers or presentations often bring anxiety. If you sense anxiety or frustration when talking to your student, take this opportunity to ask some questions.
While many parents think their student might get irritated or think they are interfering, most students find some relief in being able to talk about their concerns. Even if you haven’t experienced college personally, most people have experienced the pressures of some type of deadline. Sharing your feelings during that experience might be just what your student needs to overcome his or her own struggle. Don’t underestimate the power of your past experience and small words of encouragement! If your student feels frustrated or overwhelmed, ask questions that that will help him or her think through choices; time, study, social, rest, exercise and food. If they need to seek out assistance with their academic struggles, encourage them to come see us in the Think Center…we’re here to help!
Has your student registered for the Spring semester? Although Registration Week has passed (Oct. 27 – 31) there’s still time! It’s important for students to register now so they are able to hold their place in a class they might need for their degree. If they haven’t taken advantage of registration they can still set their Spring schedule by contacting their advisor and scheduling a time to meet. If your student doesn’t know who his or her advisor is the Think Center and can assist with that information.
