CollegePrep 101 : helping students prepare for College
Hi gang, my name is Lance Millis and I?l be your instructor for CollegePrep-101. It is my hope that after completing this course, you will be better able to make an educated decision as to a college, and have the tools to be successful once you get there.
Included in the lessons is information to help you prepare for college, select a college, ease the transition to college, and manage the changes in your life that occur during college. It is written with high school students in mind, but most, if not all of the information will be applicable to anyone involved in the process of selecting and attending a college (i.e., students, parents, grandparents, teachers, counselors, non-traditional students, those returning to college, etc.). In addition, the information will be useful to individuals planning to attend virtually any college or university, public or private.
