Project OCEAN: A Guide for Parents of CSULB Students Brochure The transition from high school to college is one of the biggest changes your son or daughter has faced. This marks a change in relationships with friends and family, increased independence, more school demands, balancing work and classes and other adjustments. As a parent, it is important to offer support and guidance, while still allowing your son or daughter to make independent choices. Our Parents Brochure gives tips and information on what to expect during the academic year, how you can help your son or daughter succeed, and the resources that are available on campus.
