Scene: College Fair at William Paterson College, Wayne, NJ
Me/Alumni Representative for Clark University, standing at my table: Hi!
Parent: (Picking up a booklet and looking through it.) I would love to go back to college!
Me: So would I! That’s what I kept thinking, and saying, as my daughter went through her college search!
Parent: But I would do it completely differently this time.
Me: I’d do it EXACTLY the same way!
And I think that says it all! So many parents and young adults talk with me about their college search and selection process, and how they
- felt unprepared and overwhelmed
- didn’t really understand all the steps on the path to college
- would like to have really engaged in and enjoyed the process.
I know it can be different!
