College Life: Challenges and Changes for the Homeschooler (Daniel Johnson)
Choosing a college (or even whether to go) is just the beginning. Attending college can bring with it a variety of changes: more independence with more responsibility, new learning and testing modalities, changes in how you manage your time and routine, new relationships and adjustments to existing ones, and even changes to how your faith is practiced. For some, it can be overwhelming. Knowing what to expect and planning accordingly can make all the difference.
