LOOKING AHEAD TO COLLEGE: COLLEGE ADMISSIONS; A FAILED RITE OF PASSAGE
Dr. Michael Thompson, New York Times best seller on Wed. March 29th, 7-8:30 p.m. at the Nock Auditorium. All speakers are free and registration is not required. TEENS are invited to join you for this talk!
Free childcare is provided during speakers in the Nock by NYS Staff or Volunteers. Bring a friend, spouse, partner or on your own!
This talk is an emotional survival guide to looking ahead to college for high schoolers, as well as their parents. To the extent that people think the process is just about the RIGHT college, or worse yet the ONE AND ONLY GREAT college, both parents and child are at risk for alienation from one another and disappointment in themselves.
Everyone survives the college application process, more or less gracefully. Dr. Thompson gives a number of suggestions regarding how families can develop a philosophy about the process and enjoy it more.
