Anxious About Starting Your First Semester of College? We Can Help.
Written by The LCU Blogging Team on Tuesday, July 11th, 2017 in Campus Resources
The road ahead is both exciting and daunting if you just graduated high school and are about to embark on your college career. It’s exciting in that you’re taking the next step on your journey, but daunting in that you’re now in unfamiliar territory and looking at a seemingly endless to-do list.
For several recent high school grads, the season before college feels overwhelming. There are several tasks to complete before arriving to move-in. There isn’t constant support from a high school counselor and it’s not yet time to head to school to begin meeting with a college academic counselor. It might feel like there is so much to do and too many unknowns. Some students might think it’d be easiest to not show up for college in the fall because of this overwhelming season.
As college academic professionals, we’ve seen this happen to several students. If you feel this way, we want to help.
We understand that the list of things you need to take care of in the next couple of months can get long, and may include:
- Understanding financial award and aid letters
- Registering for orientation
- Filling out housing forms
- Sitting for placement tests
- Registering for classes
- Understanding your tuition bills
- Determining what you’ll need to bring with you to your dorm room
