WHAT STUDENTS AND PARENTS WILL TAKE AWAY FROM THE PRESENTATION
The presentation by Dr. Harvey communicates critical differences between K-12 education and college as well as strategies that greatly increase students' chances of graduating and entering and succeeding in their career of choice. Benefits of the presentation include but are not limited to:
- Students will hear about simple strategies they can implement during college that will improve their grades, time-to-graduation, career readiness, and the likelihood of landing a job in their chosen career.
- If students implement the strategies discussed in the presentation,
they will be more likely to improve their time-to-graduation saving
approximately $80,000 to $150,000 in real (tuition dollars) and
opportunity costs (lost wages from taking 5 to 6 years to graduate).
- Students who graduate on time have lower student loans!
- Parents will increase their understanding of the role they will play in the success of their child's future college and career success.
