Are you thinking about college?

The Middle College teachers held a College Night for their student's parents. They graciously offered to share the presentation with us. There is a lot of very helpful information for those of you who intend to apply to a 4 year college, or transfer from a community college. The presentation also includes helpful information about how to select a college, figuring our what you might be interested in studying in college, financial aid, scholarships, and how to choose the right college. It is well worth the time to read. The link is below.
