As the seasons transition from summer to fall, your student is likely transitioning from a nervous and excited newbie on campus, to someone with a new sense of self, purpose, community, and routine. They have found their flow in their courses, and most have taken at least one big exam. Mid-term grades will be released this month and they serve as a snapshot in time of how your student is performing in his/her/their courses.
