About Transitions

You’ve graduated high school and are moving on to higher education! The first few years after high school can be a time of rapid change and intense new experiences.

This book addresses some important things that aren’t usually talked about, but are important to consider at this transition point in your life. We believe that not all lessons need to be learned the hard way. This book is a result of feedback from a large number of students who wished a resource like this was available when they started their first year of post-secondary education. Issues like anxiety, roommate conflict, financial struggles, depression, or sexual assault are not something you have to address on your own. You might not need some of the content, and that’s okay, but we hope that you’ll keep it on hand, as there may be something in here that at some time you, or a close friend, might need to know more about.
