The To Do Checklist

If you're here for the best college freshman summer checklist and their parents, you are in the right place...

While the summer before college shouldn’t be a drag filled with tasks and appointments, taking care of business in the summer goes a long way toward setting up your child (and you!) for a great freshman year.


Take a look at the list below and pencil these in over the course of summer...

Link in! My freshman was not on LinkedIn when she left for college but I encouraged her to do so early on. A life lesson I want my kids to know is that connections matter. A professional LinkedIn account is a great way to start connecting with professors, teaching assistants and others. By the end of those four years, your child will have a thriving professional network.

Suggest your child visit LinkedIn and get set up this summer.
