College Prep Workshop to be Held At Belle Isle Library

Going to college is more than packing a suitcase and moving into the dorm—but you can't even do that if you haven't prepared.

The Belle Isle Library, 5501 N. Villa, is presenting a workshop, “Getting Ready for College: Questions and Answers,” on Tuesday, Jan. 23 from 7:00 to 8:00pm .

“The program is designed for people in their teens and adults who want to go back to school,” said Belle Isle librarian Ann Meeks.

“An academic advisor from Rose State College will be on hand and ready to discuss everything from the application process to scholarships and financial aid, and from degree requirements to general preparedness.”

Almost everyone who's ever been to college will agree that the first year of their college careers would have been more profitable if they had known in advance just what to expect. The “Getting Ready for College: Questions and Answers” session can be a major part of the preparation process.
