Keeping in Touch
Enter modern technology:
It’s always easy to keep in touch via text message (or... *gasp* a phone call.)
If that isn’t enough, there’s tons of ways to video chat! Facebook or Skype work well for one-on-one. For group chats, Google+ works best.
If you don’t want to see their smug mugs, then there’s more instant messaging solutions out there than you can shake a stick at. AIM, MSN, Google Talk, Jabber/XMPP, Yahoo, as well as other “texting” services if you all have smartphones.
Once you get to Summer, you’ll find that you might miss your college friends too. (Jeez, I’m all sappy in this blog post.) This advice also applies to that situation!
However, if you have a lot of friends staying in Rochester for the Summer, whether it’s a co-op, Summer classes, or just plain living there, there’s an even better solution.
Aside from being inherently fun, a road trip will get you to see your comrades in person. You could also have your high school friends join you, and get to meet “the other family.”
Now, this may not be feasible if you live extremely far away from RIT, or don’t have a car, but you can get train and bus tickets for fairly cheap (remember that blog post?)
No matter how you choose to do it, keeping in touch is important. And as I’ve hopefully shown you, it’s easy to do.
