A lot of people I know visit home pretty often in college. Would you recommend this? Why or why not?

Going home often can be tempting, especially if you live close and have strong connections to your family. However, visiting too often can lead you to fall back into your old habits and rely on your parents to solve your issues. It can also distract you from fully integrating into the college community. Many clubs, groups, and events happen on weekends, so missing out on those can take a toll on your social life while in university. It can also detract from your academic life as many students (myself included) become immediately lazier when returning home. I would try to limit your time at home. If you're still anxious to see your family and are just a short drive away, maybe try just driving out for a meal together instead of spending all your time there.
