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

I think how often you go home can vary based on how long you've been in college. My parents always suggested not coming home for at least the first month of college, because that allows you to get over your first wave of homesickness and become more integrated into the college community. Once you become accustomed to living at your school, it'll just depend on how often you want to go home. You may find that you prefer staying at school, since that's where most of your friends are. Or you may find that you still want to go home fairly often to catch up with your family. I think it's perfectly okay to visit home as often as you want, provided that you allow yourself some time to fully adjust to college life and living on your own first.
