Countdown to College: The Essential Steps to Your Child’s Successful Launch by Monique Rinere
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 1.9 MB
Overview: After all the testing and touring and applying, your child has been accepted to college. Congratulations! Now what?
Every new student grapples with making a successful transition to college-with remaining healthy, happy, grounded, and in school. Indeed, the national statistics are sobering: One in three freshmen will not come back for sophomore year, and less than 50 percent will graduate on time. A student’s adjustment is key, especially during the period starting with the lazy summer months before move-in and ending at the dizzying close of a student’s first semester. Distilling lessons and sharing stories (some cautionary, some entertaining, all helpful) from her long college advisory career, three-time Ivy League dean Monique Rinere presents a unique month-by-month road map to a college experience that is rich, rewarding, and successful for teens and parents alike.
