College Prep Course for Parents Offered at Penn State Fayette September 17

9/9/2009 —
Parents of college-bound students are encouraged to attend Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’ “Parent Prep 101” class on September 17. This free session designed specifically for parents will be held in Swimmer Hall in the Williams Building from 6:30-8:00 p.m.

“Parent Prep 101” will help parents understand what their children need to do to prepare for college, and how they can help in their success. Admissions Counselor Apryl Kadish explains, “Parents may be college graduates themselves, but they sometimes find that things are very different from when they attended. Parents with no college background will find this program especially helpful. This course was designed to answer any questions parents might have. It will help them help their college-bound children get off to a good start and make the transition smoothly.”

Parents who attend the class will learn how to help their children set expectations and prepare themselves academically. They will also learn how to help their children aim toward a career, research and apply for college, and apply for financial aid.

For more information or to reserve a seat, call the Penn State Fayette Admissions Office at 724-430-4130.
