“I was that student - very shy and nervous to meet new people - I kept my door closed and wasn't very involved outside the classroom when I first got to Curry. But at some point, I made a conscious decision to get out of my comfort zone and started making things happen.”

When Your Student Returns Home
- Remember when your college student returns home that the family dynamic will change once again. Your student will need to remember that things at home may have changed while she was away. Young siblings will have grown, siblings will have a new place in the family and may have different attitudes and responsibilities.
- Be sensitive to the at-home sibling when the college student returns. You will be happy to have your college student home for a visit, but don't ignore the at-home child. Find ways to do things together, if possible.
- Encourage your college student to find some special time to spend with his sibling while he is home. This is a good opportunity to reconnect.
- Be prepared to navigate changing and differing expectations and rules when your student returns home. There may now be some double-standards or different rules for the college student and her younger siblings.
