A Resource for Parents


Parents of college going students have many questions about how to provide the best educational experience for their children. Parents are eager to know about what programs lead to a good career, what are a few good colleges and universities, how to get scholarships, and how to gain the maximum benefits from an institution, and other related questions. Parents of international students, in particular, have many questions and concerns and sometimes simply don’t know where to turn. The purpose of this blog is to answer these question for parents in an objective and forthright manner. This blog provides information that goes beyond the marketing blitz of colleges and universities. As a seasoned educator with more than twenty years of experience in higher education, I hope to be of service to you. This piece was written by Uma Gupta.
