Getting Ready for College: A Family Workshop for Rising College Freshmen

Is your student starting college in the fall? Join At The Core for a summer of support that’s designed to ensure your rising freshman starts college off on the right foot. Sending your child to college can be scary. You need support, guidance, and answers to your questions about academics, safety, finances, communication, and more. Over the past 10 years, we have accumulated tips, tasks, and a ton of resources we know you’ll value. We created this workshop to include all the insider tips we would want our families to know and think about in the coming months. Both parents and students will appreciate the chance to learn together about what to expect and what you can be doing over the summer. The topics we will cover will generate some great conversations.
