College Admission is featured in "A Summer Reading List from College Admission Counselors" in Valerie Strauss' Washington Post Answer Sheet blog. Thank you to Kenyon College Dean Jennifer Delahunty for recommending our book! This is a great list overall, assembled by Brennan Barnard, director of college counseling of The Derryfield School in Manchester, New Hampshire with suggestions for parents and students, as well as some all-around fun summer reading such as Claude Steele's “Whistling Vivaldi," recommended by: Susan Weingartner, Director of College Counseling at Chicago's Francis W.
Our favorite YA author John Green has "33 Fun Facts about Colleges" in this YouTube video from Mental Floss.
Did you know, for example, that Villanova students manage the Pope's social media?
Or that Cornell might have been in Syracuse, but Ezra Cornell was once robbed there?
Or that Rice University has a puppy room set up during finals to help students cope with stress. Awww... We want one of those!
See the whole thing here.
