Did you know that only 36% of today’s college students graduate from college within four years? Did you know that the cost of college is continuing to grow at three times the rate of inflation? In this two hour seminar, Annette Bosley-Boyce, Director of Career Services at Albertus Magnus College and author of The College Success Plan, will explain the facts, tips, and strategies to help teens (and their parents) develop a realistic and beneficial plan for college—one that inspires them to set goals for themselves on career planning and college financing. If you have a teen in the family preparing for college, then you don't want to miss this highly interactive seminar!
