13 Steps to Make It On Your Own in College

You are heading out of your parents' house to start your college career. Make sure you are college-ready by tapping into these strategies and tips.

Build Your Own Support System

College is a unique time and a challenge for everyone. Putting together a support system for when things get tough can be a life-saver. Find someone in the disabilities office who you can talk with about academic snafus. Hire a coach or talk with a campus counselor when you feel overwhelmed by your workload or campus life. Befriend someone in the on-campus health clinic that you can visit for med checks or health challenges.
