This is a huge step for Nick. We prepared as we normally do whenever he goes somewhere new. We found his classrooms and other important places on campuses. His classes are on two different campuses. We found his classrooms, bathrooms, tutoring, coffee shop, and places to hang out. We did "dress rehearsals" to ensure that he could find his way from the parking lot to the classes.
While doing this, Nick met up with some old friends from high school. That was a wonderful suprise, and very important to Nick. He's doing things that his peers are. Seeing and conversing with them on campus gave Nick a boost of confidence, making the transition to college easier.
