Transitioning to College

Starting college has its own set of rewards and challenges. Transitionyear.org is designed to be a helpful resource for both students and their parents.

For many first-year students, friendship-building skills can be rusty. This site has good suggestions on how to make friends at school: http://www.succeedsocially.com/howtomakefriendscollege

Review: This app is pretty extensive. It has several self-guided meditations and audio exercises, as well as a journals, articles, and step-by-step instructions to help you monitor and change unhelpful thoughts.
