College Residence Life Staff: Speak to Gain Respect

When you speak, do residents listen or ignore you? If you?re having trouble commanding respect, it could be the way you?re saying it. Here is a list of words that can sabotage your effectiveness as a communicator. See if you recognize any of these red flags in your speech:

Reducing the Administrative Burden for Further Education Colleges

The introduction of the Government?s Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA) in September 2004 meant that more young people from poorer backgrounds could afford to stay on in further education instead of being forced to find work.

Creating the Acceptable College Applicant

America?s colleges and universities no longer have enough room to accommodate all the qualified students who apply. As a result, schools are forced to reject far more applicants than they accept. The goal of admissions committees is to weed out the qualified masses and fill their halls with resourceful, well-rounded acceptable students. In today?s highly competitive college admissions process, knowing how to present a student to be acceptable not only substantially increases the chances of being admitted, but is an essential factor for success after college.

The College-Bound Students Early Bird Menu

Many parents and students I counsel confuse Early Admission, Early Read, Early Decision, Early Action and Early Notification. How these and the other admission strategies listed below are used, will determine the course of the student?s college years. Understanding them is an absolute must!

Getting Into College No Longer A Numbers Game!

Sending your kids to college has never been more difficult or more expensive, and outstanding grades no longer guarantee admission! Student competition is at an all-time high and families now face the toughest admissions committees in history, soaring tuition costs, and a financial aid system designed to eliminate all but the most knowledgeable and persistent applicants.

Saving For College ? Your Number Two Priority

In today?s highly competitive college admissions process, families must never lose sight of the fact that nothing is more important to parent or child than the student?s acceptance to college. Your second priority is how to pay for it.

Submitting The College Application

At this point, except for the waiting, the worst is basically over! However, the way you submit the student?s stuff is just about as important as the stuff that?s being submitted!

The All-Important College Application

H.G. Wells once said, ?Human history becomes more and more a race between education and catastrophe,? which emphasized the importance of continued schooling. As the fate and future not only of any great nation ? but the world, is dependent on the education of its youth, a far brighter light is cast upon the college application process.

Tips On College Selection

It is highly recommended that early in the college selection process, parents and student(s) visit some schools to determine if they?ll be suitable. The criteria that must be considered before any college is applied to include:

Writing The All-Important College Application Essay

The application essay is the most crucial piece of writing the student will submit to the colleges, and, if not done impressively, it will also be their last. In most cases, it is the college?s first actual exposure to the student, and first impressions have a habit of lasting. A memorable essay contains all the student?s Kodak moments interlaced with some less than blissful adventures to create the necessary drama in the writing.

Most Colleges Require Letters Of Recommendation

I cannot overemphasize the importance of developing strong relationships with high school teachers and counselors as early as possible. An extremely well written, all-telling letter can absolutely make the difference of being accepted or rejected to any college.
