Sage Advice

Sage Advice from Veteran Parents

A child going off to college is a major milestone for every parent. One of the most important things you can do is remind your student of the opportunities available in COSAM so he or she can make the most of their entire experience. 

  • Meet your academic advisor
  • Don't be afraid to stop by Student Services if you have a question (Peer advisors can help students feel more relaxed and are always there to help)
  • Ask about research opportunities
  • Check out clubs and organizations
  • Visit your professor -- faculty provide office hours for your student to ask questions and get help
