Moving a student

In the course of a full school year, a student is likely to collect a lot more than just information.   They will also collect a great number of belongings; however, the good news is that making sure everything gets home at the close of the semester does not have to be all that difficult, providing you follow a few simple guidelines.

The moving experience can be made considerably easier, and a good deal more orderly, with the help of accessories such as packing tape, boxes, bubble wrap, hand trucks and moving blankets.   All of these are essential tools for relocation purposes and can simplify the process a great deal.   It is important to remember that some items do not belong on any moving truck – items such as important documents, a change of clothes, identification, credit cards, and snacks and drinks should be kept in a travel bag that is close at hand.

Parents and students alike can make the move back home a lot easier for all concerned by being realistic about the rules and responsibilities of living back at home and learning to compromise.   Curfew may no longer be appropriate for college students, but at the same time young people should make their parents aware of when they are going to have a late night out.

Students are advised to keep their sense of humor; avoid activities that seems strange to their parents, such as ordering pizza at 3am; and remember that they will be back at school in no time!
