Welcome back to college (or welcome, if you’re a freshman)! The first couple weeks of your semester/quarter are finally over, which is such a relief! However, if you are anything like me, you also might be experiencing homesickness in college. Don’t worry, it happens to everyone. Or, maybe you have distanced yourself from home and want to get back on track. Whether you are an hour away or a couple of time zones, maintaining relationships with your family and friends back home is very important to your success, and it can be difficult at times. It doesn’t seem like something that could affect so much, but little changes can make huge differences.I recommend discussing these boundaries in person so it’s easiest to communicate thoroughly.

Create a visitation schedule and a designated call time for you and your family, to help you organize your life too.
