College Success is Possible!

With three outstanding university professors from across the country, this workshop focuses on college-bound Freshmen, incoming High School Juniors and Seniors, and their parents.  


You will learn how to show your college thinking, use the university's campus resources to support your success, and get the chance to ask your (confidential) questions from folks who will share what they wish they had known before they (or their child) headed off to college!  


This workshop will be held the morning of August 10, from 8:30 to 1:30 pm at St. Michael's Episcopal Church, 4364 Hardy Street.  We will serve a FREE continental breakfast and a FREE lunch!  It doesn't get any free-er than that!  Again space is limited, so reserve yours now!  Click this link:  College Success is Possible!
