Dear Students, Parents and to everyone interested in the College Journey,
I decided to take my website more into the realm of 2011 and feature my first blog, and it was not too long ago when I didn’t know what a blog was! Through my years as a College Counselor, I have found so many opportunities to share experience and insight and now finally have a place to put it. I intend this blog to feature a variety of informative and fun college topics such as spotlights on specific schools, changes and trends in admissions and high schools, outstanding essays, best of lists and more.
I also hope to feature different writers and voices whether it be a freelance article or past or present students that would like to share their experience. I want to open the cyber doors to anyone that has a topic that pertains to the shared and exhilarating experience of college. Here is the link to my new blog, with the first article featuring just one of many special schools. College Spotlight
Please feel free to get involved and share with others. Stay tuned for much more to come and thanks for reading.
