With unique knowledge of issues that strongly affect campus dynamics, students provide a vital viewpoint on the matters that affect them. Perspectives is a video series that uses visual media to highlight student voices and catalyze further community dialogue.
The transition from life as a high school student, to life as a student at the University, is often a difficult one. In addition to a more demanding course load, many students face pressures associated with moving away from home, adjusting to life in an unfamiliar place, and issues with roommates and living situations. As a new student last year, I found moving away from my family to be particularly difficult. In this video, several University students share the most challenging aspects of their transition to college.
