The College Rhythm of October

Posted on October 1st, 2004 by

The following are some typical experiences and emotions for students during October: The academic course load is in full gear; roommate problems begin to arise; students question: “Do I fit in here?”; first tests/papers returned; Nobel Conference; midterm exams; Fall Break; love relationships from home remain strong; seniors are starting the job interview or graduate school process; and positive or negative results of early semester habits become evident. If your student is returning home for Reading Break, it is normal for them to be exhausted from a busy college schedule and to catch up on sleep.
