College Parent News and Views

College Parent Central is pleased to introduce a new feature.  We continue to believe that the more that college parents know and understand about the college experience, the less we worry and the better we will be able to help our students to succeed and thrive throughout their college career.  We try to provide information and suggestions to help parents navigate the often mysterious and sometimes overwhelming role of college parent.

There is a lot of information out there on the web.   We’d like to help you find some of the information that might be most interesting and useful to you as a college parent.

We plan to do an occasional post gathering useful links to articles we think college parents might find helpful.  We’ll share news and sources we’ve found as we do our research.  We hope that it will help to introduce you to new ideas and to help you keep up with some of the current issues that may affect your college student – and you.

We invite you to read some of the articles suggested below – and to let us know if you find this new feature helpful.
