Media Roundup: The Week In Review

temp-post-image


Every day I scour the media for happenings in college and careers. Out of the dozens of articles that cross my desk, one or two is noteworthy enough to share. If you’re not already doing so, you can keep up to date with these resources by following College Planners of America on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more.

Plus, we wanted to make sure you know about the College Planners online library which contains the “best of the best,” on a sampling of topics including Admissions, Financial Aid, Preparing for College, and Testing. These are timeless, informative resources meant to quickly give you the up-to-date info you need.

Finally, here’s a roundup of articles from this past week:
