We’re wishing ourselves a happy anniversary here at College Parent Central. We’ve reached a five year milestone! Somehow it seemed appropriate to begin this venture on April Fool’s Day — April 1, 2009 — as we launched ourselves into the unknown. We believed then that college parents need support and are an important factor in student success. Five years later we are even more convinced of the importance of parent education and support.
We’ve spent five years sharing nearly 500 posts, writing about college parenting, talking to college parents, working with college students, and working and speaking with professional colleagues. During this time, we are proud to have contributed to the important dialogue that helps parents better understand and work with their students.
Throughout the past five years we have learned even more than we have shared. We are grateful to those people who have shared their stories and wisdom and helped us as we continue to reach out to parents who may find our information helpful.
