Recommended Reads

“Read.” It is my favorite word (other than “accepted.”)[1] Being “well-read” provides an essential foundation for comprehension, critical thought, and communication. The amount of parenting and college admission books intended to help students and parents navigate the college journey may seem endless. Here, I share my favorites and must-have books. Look for seasonal “Recommended Reads” throughout the year and occasionally in newsletters.

College Visit Not Possible?Become a Virtual Sleuth 

Detective, researcher, and explorer are some of the hats you may wear during your college journey. Not every student can have an in-person college tour. Taking advantage of virtual information sessions, Ambassador Chats, and college fairs in the comfort of your home can expand your knowledge of colleges familiar and soon to be discovered.

Virtual College Fairs & Tours

Visiting colleges is not always possible. Using online tools and virtual tours that can be found on many college websites will help your college detective work continue without delay.
