Freshman or New Families

The semester is at an end, and your student is completing final projects and exams. Stressors may be peaking, and it is important that your student develops successful coping mechanisms. Western provides many seminars that help dealing with stress and studying for finals. The final exams schedule can be found online . Mixed emotions clash with your student, from relief and happiness of going home and being done with finals, to the sadness of leaving friends and activities at Western. Western’s residence hall policy states that students must be out of the residence halls 24 hours after their last final. If students can’t move out before then, they need to contact their resident assistants to make proper arrangements. Readjusting to home life can be hard for your student, which is why it is important to start communicating with him or her about your expectations before your student arrives home.
