Hi All! I am Jody, and I work in the Linden Educational Services office in Bethesda, Maryland.

This is back to school time in the States, which means Bed, Bath & Beyonds, Targets and Ikeas are filled with excited college students and nervous parents trying to prepare for the big move to school. Some students in the States choose a school close to home and can pack up the car and drive. Others, like international students, must fly.
I fell into the second category as a student, and my morning errands sent me down memory lane. I had to pick up a passport at the Chinese Consulate and send it from the local FedEx. The store was filled with college-aged kids surrounded by their boxes. One girl who appeared to be about 18 or 19-years-old was frantically loading large boxes onto the counter. Clearly she was headed back to school.
The sight reminded me of the first time I had to pack all of my belongings in boxes and ship them off to school. I felt just as frantic as this girl looked, and I was nervous about arriving at school in a new city and having the shipping company say, “Sorry, your boxes burst open on the way…your stuff is now scattered across the Mid-Atlantic. Best of luck!”
Of course, my boxes arrived that year and every year after, and within a few, short years, I was a box-builder/shipper extraordinaire. However, it does not make the packing process any easier, especially your first time out. How do you fit 18 years of prized possessions into two suitcases? It is a daunting task.
Regardless of how you get to college, the journey there is filled with little stresses, new experiences and loads of excitement.
A fair is a great place to get your university questions answered – join us this fall!
*Don’t forget that all of the university representatives you meet at the fairs have also been where you are. Of course, they are knowledgeable about the schools they represent, but they also each have personal stories and experiences to share with you about their years in college. The brochures are helpful, but the reps themselves are your best resources.
