TLC often overlooked in college decisions

There is a huge difference between colleges in how they regard and treat students. This difference can determine whether a student will be going the distance to graduation or going home in defeat after a few short semesters. 

While all colleges send out acceptance emails and letters, some take the time to make a personal phone call to the student with the good news. Many colleges offer the opportunity for an interview on campus but some arrange an appointment with the college president for prospective students. While all colleges provide a variety of academic support services, some pre-select students to receive an invitation to participate in services tailored to help them succeed and tell them about it before they even get to campus for orientation.

Little things make a big difference for students transitioning from high school to college. Pay attention to the details of college acceptance letters, emails and phone calls for clues to how students are treated at each college. Consider TLC (tender learning care) as part of the college decision for the best outcome for the high school senior at your house.
