Supporting your student

Your support is critical to your student’s success and can be demonstrated in many ways by:

  • Being mindful of mid-term and exam periods and offer your student more space.
  • Encouraging participation in Orientation Week and getting involved in the various opportunities available on campus – it a great way for your student to meet new people.
  • Encouraging your student to come up with his or her own solutions.
  • Encouraging your student to look at the positives and to learn from his or her mistakes.
  • Listening to your student and only offering advice when asked.
  • Re-assuring your student that you believe in and trust him or her.
  • Sending an encouraging message.
  • Suggesting that he or she explore the various student resources available on-campus.
