How To Communicate With Your College Freshman During Finals Week

All across these United States, college students are fah-reak-ing out over finals.  The Stacks are full and their Starbuck’s accounts are almost empty.  Just hang on, kids.  It’s almost winter break.

I need to talk to Kid A about all kinds of things… money, schedules, where she plans to live next year, her grandiose plans for spring break vs. what’s really going to go down, etc.  But finals week is not the time to bring up such serious buzz kill topics.  This is the time to send love notes, supportive messages, and comfort food.

And fun text messages:

Please wish Kid A luck on her finals…

    • Thank you, Heather. She’s been having the time of her life so far. It’s like this school (or college in general) was specifically created to make her happy. And that makes me smile.

  1. Thanks for keeping me laughing! This is great! I think MIT kids had kegs. All the best to Kid A and everyone! I thought GT was going to take care of FSU! Miss seeing you all.

    • Because of all of the studying or because of the no keg rule? Your kids will make it anywhere, Paul. We may have to show them all how to sneak a keg in, but they’ll do fine.
