Transferring from a community college--advice??

A parent writes:

HI Our son will be transferring next Fall to the U of M campus from a small community college. He is very outgoing and determined. We are excited for his transition and new challenges, yet would like to hear from other parents who have had children experience the transfer process. Any tips or words of wisdom? Thanks in advance, Dianne and Greg Johnson



My son started graduate school at U of M Minneapolis last fall. He seems to have acclimated quite well.

Tips - if your son is going to live off-campus, start looking early and understand the neighborhood.

Regards, Mark
