Host: How long should I expect the adjustment period to take?
Richard Stevens: When you move on to campus, transition is going to be part of the process and for some students, it’s a week, for some it’s a semester. And it’s really about your personal needs and as you adjusts to campus. Sometimes the campus is much larger than your home town and so the number of people is just overwhelming at times. Other times, it’s much smaller and you feel like everybody knows everything that you’re doing.
So, it will vary from person to person. And it’s really about finding your niche on campus that’s the most important.
