College life is very different from secondary school. It is a transition period for the students to go from being an adolescent to be a young adult. It is a time of adjustment and making choices. It is full of challenges that can be exciting but also very stressful. Student Affairs Office is here to provide students with guidance and assistance in facing these challenges so they can have whole-person development and pursue an enjoyable college life.
