Set Up Your Student for a Successful Spring Semester


Congratulations to both you and your student on making it through the Fall 2019 Semester! We hope you’ll enjoy the extra time with your student over the next few weeks! But, don’t forget that your student will be back at Ball State before you know it.

Here is a list of things you can talk to your student about so that they can get back into the swing of things after Semester Break and have a successful Spring:

  • Check in with your student about their resilience and coping techniques, their peer-to-peer conflict management strategies, and the resources on campus they can utilize to help with stress management.
  • Ask your student about their class schedule for next semester, as well as their plans to stay involved and connected to campus.
  • Remind your student to keep building healthy habits, like finding time to stay active and eating healthy on and off campus.

Having these discussions with your students prior to the start of second semester can help make sure they are successful, productive, and happy during their time at Ball State!
