Finding the College That's Right For you

Are you a high school student wondering where to go after graduation? With hundreds of colleges and universities out there, it’s hard to know where to begin your search.

Join us in the Teen Center on Wednesday, November 20th at 6 pm, for this engaging and hands-on experience. Dr. Jim Overton of College Consultants of South Carolina will teach teens where to go online to find college resources and what to look for to find the perfect school. Light refreshments will be served and wireless internet is available for those with laptops.

As an added bonus, teens who attend will have a chance to WIN a copy of Dr. Overton’s book, How to Succeed in the Scholarship Search: A Workbook for High School Students.

In addition to this workshop, the Richland Library offers many resources for the college-bound. Check some of them out below!

Amazon Says: Maximize your college experience! The path to higher education is filled with college visits, paperwork, letters of recommendation, essays, and application fees--and that's just to get in! After that comes the financial aid paperwork, student loan notes, scholarship applications, and vouchers--and that's just to pay for it! Then come the roommate compatibility survey, the lists of what to pack, what supplies are need for classes, and the lists go on and on. The Everything College Checklist Book is here to help. These valuable checklists help you keep track of applications, references, transcripts, and financial aid. There are lists of questions to ask potential roommates, what to pack for dorm life, and ideas for the supplies needed for stress-free studying. It's the ultimate guide for making a smooth transition into college life. less...
