Roundup of Helpful Posts for June

College students (or soon-to-be college students) are often in yet another transition in June.  Those students already in college may have finished their formal academic year in May.  By June they have settled in to a summer term, a summer job or internship, or may be diligently looking for that first post-college job.  For high school students, June may bring graduation and the realization that college is just around the corner.  For parents, the summer months may be an interesting time of having a student return home after the year away or helping their student prepare to leave home for college.  There is something happening for almost everyone.

Last June we did a roundup of posts from last year that may be helpful to both you and your student at this point in the academic year.  You may view our roundup for last June here. It contains many helpful articles.  This post contains posts we’ve written since last June that may be helpful at this particular time of year.
