October can be a time when some students start to experience challenges regarding community living and shared spaces. It is always best if students engage in dialogue around issues and work them out. If the challenges cannot be resolved, students should contact their RA or AC right away to ask for help or mediation. Additionally, October is also a time when some off-campus properties begin recruiting students to sign leases for the 2019-20 academic year. We encourage you to have a conversation with your student(s) about waiting to sign off-campus leases.
