They are making the rounds again, those Colleges That Change Lives guys. I received an e-mail today announcing their fall tour schedule.
If you have a child planning college in the near (or not so near) future, you need to read the book that this tour is based upon and you really should make plans to attend one of their information sessions / college fairs. What book, you ask? Colleges That Change Lives, 40 Schools you should know bout even if you’re not a straight-A student, by Loren Pope. Pope’s book has been very informative and useful the last several years as our children have considered and/or planned for college. Read my review of Colleges That Change Lives and you will begin to understand why I like this book so much.
I do suggest that you and your college-planning child read the book before attending an information session. Most of the forty colleges will have a table and at least one representative at the college fair, oftentimes more than one representative. If you have not read the book, you really won’t know which college table to visit and what questions to ask. So finish that Harry Potter book and grab a copy of Loren Pope’s Colleges That Change Lives!
