Twelve Places on Campus Your First Year College Student Should Locate Early

Starting college can be daunting – campus is big (and sometimes spread across different parts of a city!), the buildings often don’t have straightforward names, and it can be hard to get adjusted to a new college schedule. To help overwhelmed new college students, College Parent Central recommends locating these 12 locations on campus before the semester starts to help ease the transition and prepare your student for success:

  • The library
  • The computer lab
  • The book store
  • The copy center
  • The tutoring center
  • The health center
  • The fitness enter
  • The registrar’s office
  • The student center or student union
  • The career office
  • The campus safety office
  • The cafes or snack bars
