"...on their own for the first time, though pleased with their freedom, are anxious about taking responsibility for their own lives. Young people are searching for answers, for an identity, for some stability in their lives; they are vulnerable to the offer of instant community, a set of clear expectations, and ready answers to complex questions. International students, lonely and eager to learn about American culture, have a particularly difficult time distinguishing between genuine overtures of friendship from religious congregations and the organized recruitment by cults.” ..."

"...anymore. I will risk being boringly repetitious, but you are a multi-cultural, global citizen. You need to hear what is said about culture shock because you will go through it, in one way or another. You’ve been out of the country and probably don’t know all of the cultural expectations, what history is rooted in familiar traditions, or what is considered socially acceptable in terms of dating and other behaviors in this country. There is much to be learned if you open yourself to hearing things through the ears of a true foreigner, as though you are hearing it ..."

"...journey into maturity. At least that’s what parents would like to believe they are paying for. Not only are you responsible for your behavior but also for your health, your security, your grades, your social life, and your spending, among other things. It would be wise to understand what expectations your parents have before you embark on your new life. While you may be exempt from most family rules and guidelines that applied on the home front, you continue to be held to certain standards controlled by those holding the purse strings to your future. ..."
"...of easy access to everything, explicit advertising and the instant gratification mentality of the Y generation. The fact of the matter is students are just as uncomfortable talking about these subjects as their parents are, but it is important for them to know how their parents feel, what the expectations are regarding such topics and what consequences bad choices will incur. I have found that choosing to place the blame on the parents takes the burden off the student to cave in to peer pressure. “Sorry man, but my folks would disown me if they ever knew I tried ..."
"...of setting boundaries or limits again. Have you thought about where you stand when it comes to sex? If you are planning to wait to have sex, it is best for you to be completely up front with your boyfriend or girlfriend so there are no undue pressures or expectations put upon you that you are not prepared to handle. If he or she ends up running as a result, then perhaps it really wasn’t the right person for you. ..."

"...As roommates you come to your shared dorm with different life experiences and expectations about what the other is like. You start looking at the outside and conclude that you are either fairly similar or very different. You take your first cues from the most obvious characteristics such as skin color, age, language or accent; later, after getting to know each other, you ..."

"...At some point in time before the blast-off to college, parents will want to hold a fairly one-sided discussion with their student and lay forth some expectations. Having this discussion gives both sides of the equation the confidence to know that there is a structure in place and a road map to follow.

"...While you may not be aggravated by receiving a twice or thrice daily phone call from your darling in the first few weeks of school, he or she may not be so gracious if it were the other way around. Set up expectations before your student leaves as to how often and what method of communicating will be used. You might want to allow a grace period at the start of school whereby you both agree that any means and any times are open for getting in touch. Anxieties on both sides ..."

"...My husband’s father once said to him, “If you think you are mature enough to get someone pregnant, you are mature enough to pay for your own education.” Those were pretty clearly defined expectations to give a first-year college student as far as sexual behavior is concerned. Students today face many more temptations and social pressures than we experienced a generation ago. Fewer restrictions are in place to guide their behavior and repercussions for debauchery are seldom pursued to the extent they have ..."
"...and secondary academic education; now we must educate them about potential pitfalls to a satisfying and successful university career. We can’t beat ourselves up either if our children succumb to the temptation to experiment. We can at least feel confident that we have instilled some of our values and expectations in them. They are then responsible for how they decide to use the advice and trust we have given them. This counsel will be reinforced in many different voices since most colleges and universities today take a proactive approach to heading off disaster among their first-year students. Deans, counselors ..."
