Transition From High School to College - What Are the Issues?

 

Program Description:

Having spent 26 years at the University of New Hampshire and having two of my own children make the transition has provided me with some insight as to some of the opportunities and pitfalls. My conversation includes a discussion about the role each of the participants (child and parents) play in making the transition a success or not. The seminar would include a discussion about planning versus programming a student's education.
