As the end of the year approaches, a major concern most of the students in the CATS Academy Boston community have is how we are going to be able to stay in touch with our friends from all over the world. Since CATS is an international school and some students are not coming back year, many of us get instantly sad that we will not be able to see each other again and we will be losing a true friendship. Fortunately, the year is 2017 and with social media staying in touch is easier than ever. Here are a few ways to stay in touch with your friends:

  • Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, or Other Social Media Platforms: These social media platforms give you the ability to talk everyday with your friends. This approach will help you feel as if you never left them and will allow you to see what you friends are up to through pictures or videos online.
  • Put In the Work: Of course this whole process of keeping in touch is not easy and there will need to be an effort from both sides. My advice is to keep social media updated and try to talk to them when you have free time. This may be challenging because of the time differences, but there is always a good time in the day to update your friends!
  • Visit Your Friends: Although not everyone can afford to travel on a regular basis, try to travel as much as possible during breaks throughout the year. The importance of visiting your friends face to face is a way to ensure your friendships around the globe.
