College is a challenging and exciting time in your student's life. In most cases, this is their first time away from home and they will have a lot of freedom to make many choices. Every student is different in how they deal with this change and the best thing to do is to be supportive and interested in their college experiences. Encourage them to ask for help when they need it. Some common things to expect include changing their major, feeling overwhelmed, homesickness, and similar things as they search to define who they are as a person.
