ADVICE FROM PARENTS
ead some great advice from parent to parent to help you and your student
get through the month of March!
“Let your child handle it. It was hard for me to step back and let her do
(soar or fail) but I know it was something I had to do. I would give
plenty of advice, but I know in the end, she had to handle it. The best
advice is to let go.”
“Have your student write down a plan that details their educational
goals, the steps to achieve them, and a weekly schedule to allocate time
for out of class work which includes reviewing past tests and notes
related to them.”
“Let them make mistakes and learn how to fix things on their own. This
is a time for them to learn to be an adult.”
LOOKING TOWARD SUMMER:
aving the opportunity to study abroad can
be a transformative experience! In addition
to building confidence and global competence,
students who have international experience are considered to be more valuable
to almost any potential employer as our world becomes more globally
interconnected. Luckily the UL Lafayette Study Abroad Program works hard to
facilitate this experience for Ragin Cajuns.
It’s never too early to discuss study abroad options with your first-year students.
Although most students do not actually enroll in a study abroad program until
later in their academic career, the time is now to start thinking about locations,
costs and options. Typically students enroll for 3-9 credits and live/study
abroad for one semester or during the summer. UL Lafayette hosts programs in
Costa Rica, France, England, and Italy; For the summer of 2018,
Costa Rica, France, and Italy are closed.
Did you know that financial aid packages may be able to be applied to study
abroad, making this an affordable option for many? If your student is interested,
have them fill out the “I’m Interested” form online or get more information by
email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
