Conquering College: Getting In and Staying In

Students, and their parents, breathe a collective sigh of relief when they receive the good news — they've been admitted to college.  With the intense levels of stress and anxiety in today's competitive climate, it feels like the worst is over once they receive that affirmation.  The reality is that once our students get in, very shortly they will have to buckle down and do the work to STAY in.  It's not just the academics they have to think about.  There's social engagement, connections to be made with staff and professors and, of course, the mundane tasks of eating right, getting enough rest, and juggling ‘housekeeping' duties without Mom and Dad overseeing things.  I spoke with two experts who had a a wealth of information to share about strategies and resources students and tap into and make this transition much easier!  (Air Date:  October 10, 2017)
