Episode Description

College has always been a learning AND LIVING community. Students go to class, meet for lunch, and live with roommates. But today, in the midst of COVID 19, we are doing traditional college in a non-traditional format. Students now live and learn from their couch or bedroom in the home they grew up in. Our guest today, Stuart Nachbar, is an independent college admissions advisor based and publisher of Today we talk about colleges as a urban community, an organization of humans, and a network of alumni. Stuart speaks candidly about the questions colleges are asking now, what parents need to plan for, and the questions prospective students should be asking before adding a particular college to their list. If you are a parent of a high school student, this show is for you. If you are ready to get real about taking the next steps in your teen’s college admission journey, this show is for you. If you are unafraid to hear truth, this show is definitely for you.
