A Guide Book for Adults Returning to College: Adjustment

Before I start, I’d like to give a quick shout out to the Campus Clipper. The Campus Clipper has been offering awesome student discounts in NYC, from the East Side to Greenwich Village. The company helps support students in so many ways, from their coupon booklet to their Official Student Guide. Now, on to the blog!

In this post, we will discuss how find a support group on campus. You’ll need a buddy that you can relate to.

During my first semester back at school, I had to take a workshop on adjusting to college life as a non-traditional student.  The Dean of Students mentioned forming a buddy group with other students like myself.  At the time, I thought it was silly.  Later that year when I found myself struggling and the challenge was mounting, I began to reach out to other students like myself.  I slowly came to understand the Dean’s advice.


Fortunately for me, as it is a time when most adult students are returning to school, I had two close friends who had just enrolled into college.  I met with them, talked with them about school and discovered that they were experiencing the same obstacles and reactions as I was.  It took a load off our shoulders to know that there were others who were in the same situation.  It was a comfort to relate to them.  Knowing that you are not the only one experiencing challenges makes a big difference.
