The Rhythm of October for Gusties

Posted on October 2nd, 2009 by

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; midterm exams; 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 returned home for Reading Break, it is normal for them to be exhausted from a busy college schedule and to catch up on sleep.  As you talk with your student, now is a good time to have more in-depth conversations on a variety of topics.  For examples of conversation questions, visit our website for Parents.
