Parents & college kids work out rules to stay in touch


Studies are showing that parents of college students continue to be involved in the lives of their college children – by email, phone calls, texts to wake them up, remind them of tests, edit papers or question grades.  Some have gone as far as filling out roommate preferences, logging into school emails or tuning into online classes and lectures.

Studies show that students who are regulating their own lives – deciding which classes to take and how to spend their time – are happier and more satisfied with their lives.  It is important to discuss the most appropriate ways to communicate before they leave for school.

For assistance in the college search and selection process, contact the College Resource Center at or 706-366-2993.
