Going to college is a big step and can be an overwhelming process. Before students decide where they want to go, there are conversations that students and parents should have with each other, such as talking about finances, expectations, and safety.
On the College Scoops Podcast Episode 89: Healthy Mind, Healthy Body, Moira McCullough is joined by Guest Dale Troy, a college and certified health coach, to discuss tips and tricks on how students can successfully navigate college. For many students, college is the first time that they will live alone and be away from their parents for a long period of time. With new environments, people, and routines, it becomes more important than ever to manage one’s physical and mental health, while also knowing how to manage stress and navigate a new social scene.
