Get your pencils, calculators, textbooks, and…friends? Yes, it’s back to school time and, for many young people, they’ll be heading to college as first year students, returning students, or transfer students. However, loneliness and concern about making friends is a critical issue so Alysa chats with Ellen Wehrman, the Assistant Director of Central Michigan University’s Sarah R. Opperman Leadership Institute, about the considerations young people should make as they set foot on campus and make new connections. Not only will this episode help students start their new life transition, but it’s directly applicable to ANYONE who experiences life transitions from moving, new jobs, and being part of a retirement community. So, have a listen, take some notes, and put yourself out there to find your success squad!
