Special Episode
June 27, 2024


  • Parents should ask their children questions about their college tours to understand what they are really looking for in a school.
  • Students often focus on superficial aspects like cookies or the appearance of other students, rather than the academic programs or majors offered.
  • It is important for parents to guide their children in making informed decisions about their college choices.
  • Not all colleges offer the same majors, so it is crucial to research if a desired major is available at a particular school.
