June 2018 Newsletter

Attached you’ll find your last newsletter for this school year.  Hope you have a wonderful summer!
This issue includes:
  • Adjusting to College Life – Understanding the most common challenges reported by freshmen – and what to do about them — can make the transition to college life go more smoothly for both students and their parents.
  • Majoring in Landscape Architecture –  If you’re creative, interested in the environment and science, and enjoy working with people, landscape architecture may be just the career for you.
  • Talking to Your Kids About Money – They use gift cards, credit cards, debit cards and apps such as Venmo and PayPal. Money, the green stuff, is not a meaningful part of many teenagers’ lives. Before your child leaves for college, a conversation about finances is in order.
  • How Movies Can Help You Write Better Application Essays – The best college application essay, don’t merely tell what happened to you; they also let admission officers understand why what happened matters.   To do that in 650 words or less you need to think like a screenwriter.
