Hi fellow AU parents!
Just a couple more weeks and you'll be helping your child move on to the next chapter in his or her life...the college years. For most, these are huge years of personal growth--academically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally. This is the time they take all they've learned until now from you and many other sources like teachers, coaches, pastors, friends, and relatives, and apply it to real life. This is also the time they challenge what they've learned so far and figure out just who they are...and who they want to become.
This time can be exciting, frustrating, liberating, confusing, and even exhilarating for your child, and probably you, too. There will most likely be extreme highs and lows for your student, and maybe for you, as well. But somehow, you'll all make it through, and your child will come out on the other side a more confident, caring, and independent person. Because of the strong community and committed faculty and staff here, I believe Anderson University is an excellent place for this to happen.
I hope you'll take a few minutes to read the article in the Parent Resource section about academic and "life" readiness for college. Help your child build confidence by helping him or her be ready to take control of his or her college experience. I hope this article helps you all prepare for the growth to come. So...buckle up--it could be an exciting and bumpy ride.
I hope to see you at Parent Orientation!
Blessings to all parents who love their children.
