When young adults begin their college experience at MCC, they’ll be facing a number of life changes and new experiences from:
- managing finances,
- attending class,
- balancing academics with social activities, and
- deciding whether or not to drink alcohol.
You can help them during this transition by communicating your expectations and encouraging them to think through the outcomes of different choices.
Parents can also have an impact on the misperceptions of college life, including alcohol use, while providing information about resources available to their student on campus.
