One of the keys to success in higher education for any student is a finding a feeling of fit. Fit can be described as how a student feels in a particular place and whether the place is welcoming and inviting.
The question you need to ask yourself as a parent is, will your student feel safe and secure in their surroundings on a residential college campus this fall? Further, as a parent, do you really think your student will be able to concentrate on their studies while everything is in flux on their campus; after all there is an actual reason for students to be in college and that is to obtain an education.
How likely is this to really happen if they are feeling unsafe, stressed and frightened this fall? Think about it.
