Career & College Planning Seminar to be Held in Quad Cities
Career & College Planning Seminar Offered Oct. 17
Students and Parents Encouraged to Create a Plan for Life After High School
DAVENPORT, IOWA (Oct. 15, 2013) — High school sophomores, juniors and their parents can learn about planning for career and college during a free presentation by the Iowa College Access Network (ICAN) and St. Ambrose University’s North Davenport Education Center. This will be the first community program offered by the new Eastern Iowa Student Success Center, which held its grand opening last month. The presentation is free and open to the public.
The event will be held at 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 17 at the SAU North Davenport Education Center, 1950 East 54th Street, Davenport. During the presentation students and parents will receive answers to questions on topics including career exploration and assessment, academic preparation, the admissions process and requirements, college selection and campus visits, the application process, understanding costs and cost of attendance, scholarships and making a successful transition to college.
“This presentation is very helpful to sophomores, juniors and parents who are unsure exactly what steps they need to take to get ready for life after high school,” explained Lupe Hernandez, ICAN student success advisor. “As students get closer to graduation, they and their families often find the entire process confusing. This information clears up that confusion so families know what to do.”
For attendees seeking a more personalized planning session, individual advising appointments can be scheduled following the presentation. For more information about the presentation, students and parents should contact Lupe Hernandez at the Eastern Iowa Student Success Center by calling 319-423-7702 or emailing ghernandez@ICANsucceed.org.
