Admitted Students Open House — For Families Only
As part of Open House programming, we're happy to offer a few special sessions designed to help the families of our admitted students navigate the college process. Join Dr. Jill Greenbaum, a Clark alumna and nationally known college coach, author of How to Major in You and Find the Right College, to share your questions and concerns about this time of change. Find out how to make the most of this new phase of your life, assist your young adult in becoming college ready, and help guide them in selecting the college that is the best fit for them.
Each session will be offered once during all three of our Open House events.

What does it take to be ready for college? It's so much more than completing the admissions process! Find out how to help your teen be a confident, independent young adult who can set goals, take care of him or herself, and communicate effectively with everyone in the college community.
2:20 - 3:00 p.m. How will my teen’s move to college affect me?
Your teen’s transition to college will impact your role as a parent and your life. Join us to share your questions and concerns about this time of transition, and discover how to make the most of this new phase of your life.
