Things To Consider Before You Get To College
Share:    

When you leave home to go to college, life is going to change dramatically. Things that you took for granted are now your responsibility. Things that you were comfortable with will change. So, let’s talk about them.

New Coach

You have been working with a coach, at home, for a long period of time. Now you have a new face, new voice and maybe a new philosophy. Hopefully, the college coach has reached out to your coach at home to attain much needed information to enable your college coach to be most effective: How to best communicate with you? What you have been working on? What you need to improve? And finally, how do you play your best tennis? Communicate with the coach if you feel you are struggling with the transition.

Dorm or Apartment

Some schools require you to live on campus your freshman year. Living off campus will present new issues, like additional upkeep of the apartment and commute time. I suggest living on campus your first year in school. It will make the transition from home easier and increases opportunities to develop strong social bonds.
