Advice to prospective Lawrentians’ parents: Keep the lines of communication open; especially about finances and career aspiration. Listen to your child as they talk about their goals, and support them in researching, applying to, and visiting a number of good-fit schools. No college visit is a waste; the more colleges your child experiences, the clearer that final choice will be. But this can be an extremely stressful and emotional process. Help your child manage their stress and set reasonable expectations for the number of applications and visits, and a budget for their college years.
Advice to prospective Lawrentians: Enjoy the journey and pursue exciting [read: scary] opportunities. Your family, friends, and faulty will be there to support you, and you’ll learn and grow a lot along the way.
