New Student Orientation is committed to helping students and families transition to MSU Denver. Below are a few book resources we recommend for students and families to help understand, relate, and assist with the changes that occur when starting or returning to college.
Letting Go: A Parents Guide to Understanding the College Years; By:
"Letting Go is about what it feels like for parents when their kids go off to college. Karen Levin Coburn and Madge Lawrence Treeger provide a compassionate approach, practical information, and advice about the physical and emotional processes of letting go. They discuss the college-age child's search for identity, independence, and intimacy; give a succinct and accurate description of how college life has changed over the decades; and provide a year-by-year breakdown of what to expect."
Returning to Education: A Practical Handbook for Adult Learners; By: Catherine Dawson
From Barnes and Noble:
"This informative and encouraging handbook for anyone considering returning to education should help readers of any age or academic background identify opportunities and move ahead with decision making."
