Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and you know what that means: food comas, football, and fielding questions from family about what you’re doing with your life.
For some of you, this might not be such a big deal. Maybe you’ve wanted to be a veterinarian or an engineer or a school teacher since kindergarten, and your college plans will come as no surprise to even the most distant relatives around the dinner table.
For others, you may find yourself explaining your choice to go to school out of state, study art history, or don the colors of a sports rival. You may not even know what you want to study, yet.
Don’t panic. We’ve come up with a few suggestions for how to handle your family’s questions about your college this November.
