Coping In College
Starting college is a time of significant transition in life. Adjusting to college is difficult, as you learn to be independent and “adult” for the first time.
Remember, if you need guidance or are struggling, you are not alone, and there are many resources out there to help you, some of which are included below. The Alumni Program Manager at Cristo Rey Jesuit is also here for you, so do not hesitate to reach out to them, using their contact information provided below.
Most colleges and universities offer assistance and services through these offices and programs. Ask around on your campus or search on your school’s website for where you could find these offices or get in touch with someone.

Alumni Emergency Funds
Through a generous donation from the Kinder Foundation, we are excited to offer emergency funding to Cristo Rey Jesuit alumni in need of small amounts of money to help them stay in college or enroll themselves in college. If you are in need of some of this funding, you can find more information and the application through this link.
If you have any questions specific to your unique circumstances, please reach out to us!
