PEPPERS, it is critical to your child's success in college that you and your child develop a good relationship with her academic advisor. My dd is a freshman. They have an athletic/academic advisor and I'm sure your daughter will as well. We (parents) have met with this gentleman a couple of times, and email him on a regular basis. Our advisor is a professional who knows his stuff. He also gets to know the athletes and so, along your journey, you should be able to contact your dd's advisor anytime and know where she stands academically. (Note, you will have to sign a waiver when you register your child in order to get any information on your child. Otherwise, privacy laws will hinder your attempts to keep up with your child's progress.) An example of my wife and I working with our dd's advisor was an email we sent this week. We asked her advisor if he could look up some summer school options at our local JUCO that are transferable to her school next fall. DD's advisor replied that he would have a half dozen options outlined for her when they meet to plan for fall classes. I wish everyone had this type of experience. As parents, it sure takes a load off our mind knowing that several people are involved in helping our child along the way.
