    What does this question mean?

    Hello,
    I have an essay question, but I'm not so sure what it really wants me to address. How should I respond to this question?

    "What does it mean to make a successful transition to college? "

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :)

    First you need to check which kind of English variant you are dealing with.
    If, for instance, you are dealing with AmE, then college means university.
    In this case, you should address what are the main problems a student could face when going from high school to college. You may focus on differences between high school and college studying. Or maybe on the difficults of living far from one's parents, etc.
