For Seniors, The Transition to College Has Already Begun
It’s official, my daughter is going to college. She, her mother and I all huddle around the computer as she pays her deposit and clicks send.
It’s very exciting for her to finally have made a choice; she’s excited to start this next phase of her life. However, as the discussion afterward progresses, I realize that the process for her at this stage is totally different from mine. I waited until the summer to find out who my roommate would be and hoped we would be compatible coexisting in a small room. I nervously wrote letters over the summer to introduce myself and establish a rapport before the start of school. Still, it was with anticipation that we met on move in day and relaxed as we came to the realization that it was all going to work out. Over time, we settled in and were roommates for the next two years.
