college freshmen

Late September-Early October is a rough time of year for many college freshmen. While they have figured out their course
Freshman year of college is one of the most momentous and exciting periods in a person's life. For many freshmen, it is a
This weekend, I watched a U.S. news clip of a father tucking in the sheets on his kid's dormitory bunk bed. I actually said it out loud to the TV screen: "I hope you (kid who hasn't learned how to make your own bed) appreciates what you've got."
Our daughter had one of the earliest start dates for college of anyone we knew. As of tomorrow she will have been there a week already. So for all my friends still dreading the drop-off, I thought I'd share our story, and maybe impart a little calm.

It's been ten years since I've graduated from college. Those years were indeed some of the best years of my life, but I'll always have a few lingering regrets about the financial choices I made.
If you have time between classes, learn to use that time. If you have a fifty-minute class at 9:05 that ends at 9:55 and
The freshman year of college is a time of transition from adolescence to adulthood. Living independently for the first time and directing your own life -- academically, socially and organizationally -- can be daunting but it need not be a time of upheaval.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a perfectly scripted conversation when it comes to college drinking. A lot of students will choose to drink alcohol at some point during their first year. That's the reality.
As they say, bad experience is better than no experience. If you're rejected from top intern programs, don't feel disappointed
Nothing is more exciting than your freshman year in college. The change in atmosphere, the opportunity to make new friends
Asking what tips to give your daughter implies that victims of sexual assault are somehow responsible for keeping themselves safe. And that's not only untrue, but it's sexist. No one is responsible for rape except the rapist.
You go to college to learn. That's the whole point of it. After having completed my freshman year, however, I realized that you learn just as much outside the classroom as you do inside it. And, believe me, these lessons will bruise you and break you just as much as the exams and labs do.
Oh and... campus babies... best of luck to you all, and really enjoy it while you can. I mean it. XOX Seniors, if you don't
Three weeks into school I had lost 17 pounds. At first, it wasn't a conscious decision to lose weight. I had no plans to reinvent myself or show the world a brand new (read: skinnier) me. It wasn't a conscious decision to stop eating meals; it just naturally became my college routine.
Sometimes you feel as if there is no way you can recover from something. But if you can accept that you can pick yourself up and maybe put back together some of the pieces, you will make it through.
People ask me what it's like to leave your kid at college; they say they can't imagine the time when their now-little child will leave them. In the middle of naps and Cheerio snacks and sippy cups, they can't envision ever having their child not hanging all over them.
