Episode 45: Supporting Your Student Throughout College

June 27, 2022

College isn't a path that your student travels alone. Walking right beside them is a whole community of professors, classmates, alumni and of course, you — the family members who have guided and nurtured your student their whole lives.

Your support doesn't stop the moment you drop your student off on campus for the first semester. In fact, there are numerous ways that you can continue to advocate for your student, whether they're in their first year of college or rounding out their fourth.

In this episode, we're covering how to navigate your student's transition into independence, stay up to date on essential information and get involved at your student's school of choice.

Our guests are Clare DeNicola and Maryellen Sheehan, who serve as executive members of Bucknell's Parents Association. Also featured in this episode is Lauren Furman, who was senior assistant director of admissions at Bucknell at the time of recording.
