Colleges That Change Lives is a book that is definitely worth checking out. And once you have started learning about this amazing group of colleges, you'll want to find out more! If you are lucky enough to have their college fair coming to your area, don't miss it! In central North Carolina, join me in attending next Thursday (May 23) in Chapel Hill. No registration is required; more information can be found at http://ctcl.org/info-sessions/
Also, every spring a number of selective colleges travel together, making presentations and meeting potential students in cities across the country. Two of these groups will be in the area soon: Coast to Coast Tour in Charlotte on May 18 (Dartmouth, Northwestern, Princeton, UC Berkeley, and Vanderbilt), and Exploring College Options in Greensboro on May 22 (Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, Penn, & Stanford).
Registration is required for these events: coasttocoasttour.org & exploringcollegeoptions.org
