Having your child begin his or her college career can be a stressful experience for
parents, especially if they haven't lived away from home before. During this important
time of transition for the family, many parents put their own feelings and reactions
on hold while helping their child prepare for college life. Attending to your own
emotional needs, however, as well as your child's, will go a long way toward helping
everyone feel comfortable with the challenges that going to college represents.
The first year at Palm Beach Atlantic University is a tremendously exciting time, both for students and their families, and we hope and trust that you and your child will have a rewarding year!
