Another semester is almost over and summer is just around the corner! As the end of the semester approaches, a lot of exciting events are going to take place that you and your student should prepare for in advance. Whether your student will be returning home for the summer, traveling abroad for class or service, working at an internship, or staying in Tuscaloosa, we want to make sure you do not overlook all of the important events that will be happening before summer finally arrives. Use the time now before your student gets too busy to talk about their exam schedule and their plans for the move out process.
