KOKOMO, Ind. — Is the idea of sending your child to college overwhelming?
IU Kokomo admissions specialists will prepare you to navigate the process successfully with its "Parents' Roadmap to College: Guide Your Student to Success" program, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, September 9, in the Kelley Student Center, Room 130.
Tracy Springer, manager of career services, encouraged all parents of high school students to attend the free program. She added it would be helpful to all parents, but particularly those whose children will be the first in their family to attend college.
"The transition from high school to college can be overwhelming, especially if you never experienced it yourself," she said. "We want to help make this process as easy as possible."
The event is open to all parents of potential college students, regardless of what schools they are considering. Those who want to attend should RSVP by Tuesday, September 3, at www.iuk.edu/parent-visit.
Interim Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke will greet parents, and a panel of experts will discuss how to prepare your child for college, the application process, athletic recruiting, scholarships and financial aid, career services, campus life and clubs, and college majors and academics.
