“When I first stepped on campus I honestly felt like it was home. People were so nice to me. They opened doors for me. They're all smiling. When I saw the students they were all accepting of each other, asking each other questions. And they made me actually feel like I was a Curry student even though they knew I was still a high school student.”

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.
