Freshman Move-in Day
Across the country, this week and next week represent a host of freshman move-in days.
Youth Specialties’ Adam McLane posts a hilarious commentary today on “3 Types of Freshmen Parents” (thanks Adam!), recalling his own freshman move-in day with a classic story.
On the other end of the college spectrum, thanks to Chris Schaffner who pointed out the NYT special on “What is it about 20-Somethings?” that ran last week. This is a lengthy, but interesting, feature on emerging adulthood (or lengthening adolescence, depending on how you look at it). I’ve only skimmed it so far, but the extensive interview with Jeffrey Arnett, who coined the term “emerging adult”, is worth the read and dialogue for anyone working with adolescents. I suspect folks will have more to say about this one.
This week as you think about students and parents you know on both ends of that spectrum—those heading to college for the first time and those who won’t be returning to college but are ambiguous about the future—remember to lift them to Jesus and drop them a line to remind them that you’re doing so.
