The large amount of additional independence provided to students seemingly overnight can create even larger problems for first-year students who are not ready for that leap. In this breakout session, I will discuss some important tips and tricks for preparing students for life on campus. Covering everything from the hidden curriculum to executive functioning! In this breakout session I will also discuss the pros and cons of living on campus, off-campus, and the differences in meal plans. I will touch on the importance of making the most out of your campus visits/research, and who are the proper university staff to contact regarding housing and meal plan questions. We will also discuss the importance of registering accommodations and what dining and living arrangements can be made.
