Helping Students Find a Good College
Finding a college that's a good fit is challenging for any student, but especially for those who are the first in their families to attend college. In this webinar, we'll hear how one high school counselor helps her first-generation students navigate the college-planning maze. And we'll review national research that can offer guidance about the best ways to help first-generation and low-income students avoid key stumbling blocks on the road to college.
Underwriting for this webinar has been provided by the Jack Kent Cooke Foundation
Guests:Jessica Howell, executive director of research, College Board
Lauren Quigley, director of college counseling, Young Women's Leadership School of Astoria (New York)
