March

Your first-year student may be experiencing:

  • Focus on Spring Break and warmer weather

  • Difficult decisions about behaviors in which they may not normally engage

  • Sickness

  • Anxiety about midterms

  • Housing and roommate selection for the fall

How can you help?

Communicate or reiterate your values and expectations regarding alcohol and drug use. Remind your student to balance social and academic commitments. Here are some ideas for questions that may help to start the conversation.

 

“What are your plans for the summer?”

Options might include summer classes, internships, job shadowing, or paid employment.

 

“What fall semester classes do you plan to take?”

It is time to meet with advisors and register for fall semester classes; myUK GPS has some useful course planning features that your student can use in preparation for their advising meeting.
