April’s adjustments for first year students

Many first-year students experience the following during the month of April:

  • Concern over declaring a major
  • Feeling “burned out”
  • Spring fever
  • Concern about finding summer employment

Tip: find time to Facetime or Skype with your student, just to say hi.
