Welcome to College Parent Magazine There’s nothing like the energy of a college campus in the fall. We hope you’re enjoying this time with your student and having fun getting to know their new community. A year ago, I was in your shoes, helping my daughter move into her first-year residence hall. I remember how excited and nervous she was. Now she’s a confident sophomore. The start of college is an emotional time for students and parents alike. We have so many dreams and expectations but also questions and concerns. That’s what inspired College Parent Magazine. In the following pages, you’ll find advice about supporting your student’s transition and lots of practical tips you can share with them about everything from getting along with roommates to eating right in the dining hall. There’s information about safety, internships, budgets and more — and we haven’t forgotten health and wellness because we know from experience that a student living a balanced life is more likely to be happy and successful.

CollegiateParent has published this regional edition of College Parent Magazine for parents of students in Austin. This publication was made possible by the businesses and professionals contained within it. The publisher does not endorse the products or services offered by the advertisers.

Hold onto the magazine throughout the fall term so it’s there for you when you hear from your student about a struggle in one of their classes or when they realize it’s time to figure out next year’s housing. There’s lots more to explore on CollegiateParent.com and we’d love to connect with you weekly through our parent newsletter, the Loop — you can sign up on our home page. Our very best wishes to you and your student. Happy fall!
