Common Student Challenges

We recognize that each student brings their own set of skills and abilities with them when they arrive at CMU. While each student will experience the transition to college life in their own unique way there are some common experiences each student will face. We hope this list gives you some insight into what your student may be facing during their first year and what you might be able to do to support them, even from a distance.
