parents and family!
Attending college is a wonderful time of transition for students, as it represents a period of growth from childhood to adulthood. Pursuing a study abroad experience is another important step for students in order to further develop independence, maturity, and an understanding of their place within a global context. Parents and families serve a vital role in supporting their students through the study abroad application and preparation processes. Students often look to their families for advice, encouragement, and assistance as they prepare to study abroad.
