At the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford, we know college is a big deal. And getting ready for college is a big deal, too. It is exciting, but it also can be nerve-wracking and scary. So, we want to give you information that will help you prepare for and adjust to college, whether you’re a prospective student or the parent or family member of one.
We’re going to help demystify financial aid, which is confusing and complicated for almost everybody. We’ll discuss the admissions process and what you – either as a prospective student or a parent – can do to prepare for it.
For students, we’ll address how you can avoid the dreaded Freshman 15, how you can deal with roommate issues, ways you can save money while you’re in college, and how to choose a college major.
For parents, we’ll help you deal with empty-nest syndrome, give you hints on how to help your son or daughter make the transition to college, offer advice on what to look for during a college tour, and even give you ideas on how to put together a care package that your son or daughter will love.
We want to do all that in a way that isn’t stuffy or stoic or boring because who likes that? We also hope this will be a two-way conversation. If you read something and have a question or a comment, please let us know.
