July 2012 Newsletter
Dear college-bound students and families,
I hope you're having a productive summer! Rising seniors should be beginning their applications, juniors should be creating college lists, and freshmen and sophomores should be making the most of summer opportunities!
If you know students and parents who are starting to be stressed in the process, please forward this email to them. I will be raising my prices effective August 1st, so it's to their benefit to sign up now.
Please put the next free "College Knowledge" seminar on your calendar: Monday, August 27th 6:30-7:30 pm at Cherry Hills Library in Albuquerque. This seminar titled "College Planning: What You Don't Know CAN Hurt You!" will be geared specifically toward parents (although students are always welcome).
I am currently scheduling FREE INFORMATIONAL WORKSHOPS for church groups (youth or adult), PTO's, community organizations, businesses, school assemblies, college nights, etc. At the risk of sounding prideful, I have been selected twice as one of the top nine speakers in the world by Toastmaster's International so I'm usually pretty good at engaging an audience. I can tailor these workshops to specific audience needs such as college affordability, financial aid, the school search, résumé building, essay writing, etc. or I can select a "hot topic." Please reply to this email or call me if you know of a group that might be interested in my services. These will NOT be sales presentations, rather they will be informational workshops.
Anyway....enjoy the July newsletter, and if you haven't already done so, check the "upcoming deadlines," "tips," and other website sections because it's true--what you don't know really can hurt you! Here's the newsletter preview and link:
What Makes “U” Special?
After you’ve visited five or six universities, your mind starts to turn to mush. (Can you imagine how I feel visiting twenty to forty schools every year?!) They all start to look a like—bragging about their blue light security system, all-you-can-eat swipes, free sporting events, campus cash, and state-of-the-art gymnasiums. The best way to discover whether or not a “YOU”niversity is right for “U” is to know what you are looking for. And that’s exactly where most students fail! Today, I’m going to address ONE “major” aspect of college—academics—and some things you might want to consider when determining if a school is right for “U.” Remember, however, as any college student will tell you, college is about A LOT MORE than academics!
