Making the Transition
Choosing to attend college is a big decision, one that some students do not always make for themselves. For many, attending college is just the next logical step because they were already expected to attend. For others the decision is more life changing, especially if they are the first in their family to attend college or have had to sacrifice greatly to get here. A third group of students are not the traditional freshman or even of college age because they went a different direction after high school and are now making the choice to complete their degrees.
No matter the category students identify as theirs, the transitions ahead cannot be overlooked. They play a huge role in their future successes.
