Looking Beyond the Rankings to Find the Right College Fit
Presented by Maria Furtado, Executive Director, Colleges That Change Lives (CTCL)
Too often the media stories scare students and parents as they approach the college search process. This should be a joyful time, not a high stakes game which neglects the individual fit. Find out why this happens and how the process can be approached with a focus on the student–not the rankings and ratings–in order to determine a great college choice. CTCL is a nonprofit dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process.
Please plan to arrive before the college fair tables open for our nationally recognized and dynamic keynote speaker!
