Preparing for College

Getting Ready for “College Life”

Let’s start from an individual’s sense of what college will be like and build out from there:

– support
– self advocacy
– laundry
– budgeting money
– getting to class
– dorm life (having a roommate)
– dating
– when or when not to be “a hero”
– staying in contact with friends and family (seeing this process as unrelated to asserting one’s independence)
– campus life
– budgeting time
– navigating peer pressure
– embracing exploration (identifying what situations are safe)
– disclosure
