Decisions, decisions, decisions

Welcome to It Takes A Village, our podcast for parents and families of college-bound students!

Episode 9: Decisions, decisions, decisions

The enrollment deadline for many colleges is coming up on May 1, so we're answering YOUR questions about supporting your child in making a decision! With some help from Olivia Jo '23, Florian '23, and Director of Post-Graduate Planning Sally Phelps, we address listeners' questions about important factors like coming from out of state, campus size, and graduate outcomes.
