As an intellectual community, educational opportunities abound. All offer the possibility for growth and understanding of our world and our roles in a global society.
Encourage your student to keep an open mind to the learning opportunities that take place outside the classroom such as guest lectures, national and international excursions, career training, and interactions within the community. An added benefit is the potential for building lasting relationships.
Your student’s life will be full of important choices. They are the ones who are responsible for choosing healthy or unhealthy behaviors. Encourage them to:
Whether your student’s goal is to find employment after graduation or continue his/her education, these decisions most likely will affect his/her potential for success now and in the future.
Students who become an active part of the college community are generally more successful both academically and socially. Encourage your student to join clubs, attend athletic and cultural events, participate in student activities, and volunteer for community service.
There is a variety of people including academic advisers, counselors, faculty, tutors, coaches, residence hall staff, and others who are willing and able to help students. Students need to take the initiative early in the semester to avail themselves of these resources. Students are encouraged to identify and enlist the assistance of a faculty or staff member to act as a mentor during their years at Keystone.
