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

In order to contribute to a diverse array of answers, I'll provide a sort of alternate perspective that hasn't already been said--sometimes people's families/homes aren't safe or healthy environments, so in those cases I'd recommend not visiting home that often. I have friends who have felt compelled to visit home because their parents force them to visit, or because they feel obligated to--I'd recommend resisting those compulsions to go home if you feel like they're coming from external sources (i.e. someone at home wants you to come back a lot but you don't want to). If going home will remind you of something painful or traumatic (perhaps a negative environment at home, family troubles, bad experiences from high school coming back to haunt you, etc), you'll want to avoid returning too often or at all. However, for those who have supportive and positive homes to visit, visit whenever you feel like you need a bit of comfort and familiarity! :) The other answers on here are great. Going home can definitely be time and energy-consuming, so try not to let your college life slip if you tend to visit home often.
