Help For Adjusting to College Life in the US

Getting Used to College Life

Sending your child off to college can be an overwhelming experience, especially when there are no rooms available in the dormitories and your 18-year old son has moved in and is managing his first apartment in an unfamiliar city. This was the situation that we found ourselves in when our youngest went to college in Rochester, NY. Jennifer helped not only navigate the city of Rochester but also navigate all the academic details of being a full-time college student. Her assistance with managing time and figuring out how to break large projects into smaller steps for our son was invaluable. Additionally she was reliable as she was efficient in her communication with all parties involved. She would routinely e-mail not only providing updates but also asking relevant questions regarding the adjustment to college life. I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs assistance in adjusting to a new culture or situation.
