Delta Joins List of Corporations to Ditch Degree Requirements
"The ongoing enrollment crisis at U.S. college and universities deepened in spring 22. Raising concerns that a fundamental shift is taking place in attitudes toward the value of a college degree. I think that it is. I do think it is and what would really make it clear is if more, look up the delta, I want to make sure it's not united. I think it's delta. I always like to get obviously things accurately. But I think more companies just need to say that. Now, clearly, if you're a mathematician, then a degree in math is probably necessary. Although, even there, I think they should test you for knowledge, not for a degree. What if one of you had a tutor on your own and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars. It's the old way of learning is with a tutor. It's probably the best possible way of learning, after all, didn't teachers unions tell us all of my life, small classes, small classes, can't get smaller than a tutor.
Fresh update on "college" discussed on The Charlie Kirk Show
"The man, I love it. So you're an academia a lot. I mean, that's kind of your Wheelhouse. You seen colleges really push this left leaning agenda. You've seen it now trickle down into high schools and even middle schools in elementary schools. What is going on? We've got a lot of young people in the audience right now or watching over at this is being streamed over at our life church Noblesville campus as well. And we know that there's a group of students over there watching, they're getting ready to step out into this. What would you tell them saying, okay, this is what you're going to hit when you go to college, or maybe you're in a high school right now, even in Hamilton county in the central Indiana. We are seeing radical nonsensical ideology being pushed down the throats of our children, totally void of their parents, okay. And students or parents are being told to get out of the school board rooms. Don't tell us what you think mom and dad, this is not your job to teach the kids. Let us do whatever we do with your kid for 8 hours a day and you don't get a right to say what you want us to do. And what would you say to the students that are getting ready to step out into the parents that are in that situation right now? How do we combat this, Charlie? Yeah, so let me just first make some positive and then I'm going to indict college because that's kind of what I do. So just be a lifelong learner. Okay. You don't need to go to college to learn the amazing part of where we are and the world is you can listen to podcasts, take online courses from hillsdale college, read books, to be a lifelong learner, the more quote, which many of you know, the more I know, the more I realize how little I know when I thought I knew it all. And that's something that we should all embrace, which is my favorite part of my day is when I turn my phone on airplane mode, and I do my two hours of learning. Hillsdale course is Victor Davis Hanson article. Whatever it is, I love diving into there's two types of knowledge, right? There's practical knowledge, and then there's eternal knowledge, practical knowledge is who's the governor of Michigan, who's the governor of Indiana. These are things that can change. Eternal knowledge is knowledge of things that never change. They'll be true today. They'll be true 200 years from now, and they are two to a hundred years prior. You turn on knowledge is rooted in the Bible, which of course we call wisdom. Eternal knowledge is wisdom. Our schools almost never touch on eternal knowledge and they're hyper focused on practical knowledge, okay? So I just want to just first say, please, for the students out there, the parents out there, the lifelong learners. If you want to fight for liberty, and I see the great moms for liberty shirt up front, they do a wonderful job. Such a good job, by the way, they're targeted by the FBI. That's how good of a job. And I'll get to that in a second. It's unbelievable what's happened is that if you want to protect liberty, you must make learning one of your top priorities. And this kind of surprises people because like, oh, Charlie got it all figured out. Like, do you know everything about the world health assembly and the World Economic Forum? Do you know everything that they're doing? The World Economic Forum, our governor just went there two days ago. And just so you know, yeah, there were a lot of people like, what the heck is Indiana's governor doing? I didn't know that, but I didn't. I didn't know that he vetoed the transgender Bill. Oh my God. Which, by the way, they overturned his veto, I believe. Which is awesome. And he's a Republican. I have gone after your governor. He's a waste of time. And so you go to the World Economic Forum, you're whining and dining amongst some of the most evil and terrible people to planet has to offer. And it's just unbelievable. Davos, Switzerland, these go read the great reset. So your governor, I don't even know that. It's amazing. Is rubbing elbows amongst people with their stated goals are saying you'll own nothing and you'll be happy. America will no longer be the world's superpower in western values will be to a breaking point. Those are the goals of the World Economic Forum. And so can't quite imagine what that would be all about. But to the point is that I want to kind of go a level deeper, which is you want to protect liberty, you have to learn..
Douglas Petrovich Has Uncovered Fascinating Archeological Connections
"Now the headline here, and I should have started with this. Is that, I mean, this is so fascinating. It's always the more fascinating something is that more difficult it is to sum up. But this has tremendous implications with regard to the historicity of the scriptures. The stories of Joseph. Again, going way back, talking to the 19th century BC. It's amazing. The 19th century BC so far back, the time when Joseph would have lived. But we didn't really know this until fairly recently and you've been at the forefront of showing this. There are a lot of directions to go in, but I think isn't that the most controversial aspect of what you're putting out there that there are people that just don't want to believe that some of what the Bible says is true. It's history and by discovering this language, this alphabet I should say so far back long before we thought there was an alphabet, you make it difficult for those who don't like to believe that the Bible is history. Absolutely Eric and you would not believe the amount of flak that I have received in light of all of this because it is giving credence to the history of the Bible and if you think about it and I don't know, you are academic background, but in most colleges and universities, both across the United States and around the world. Professors have been using their platform to kind of mock the historical view of the Bible. And one of the greatest mockeries that's used is, hey, the Bible says the Israelites were in Egypt for 430 years. Why do we have no proof of that? And for all of this period of modern history with archeology and the study of ancient inscriptions, epigraphy, we have no examples that show us that the Israelites were there. And that then becomes a springboard to creating disbelief within our kids and our
Fresh update on "college" discussed on Bloomberg Best
"We do This is a Bloomberg money minute it's a tight jobs market so tight companies are now fighting each other to hire college interns This is going to be a really good year for college students looking for summer internships Employers are projecting to hire 22% more interns for the summer of 2022 than they did the previous summer So it's really great news That Sean van der zale executive director of the national association of colleges and employers He says college internships which pay an average of nearly $21 an hour are plentiful and available at all sorts of industries Information services high-tech oil and gas consulting even retail and transportation We're seeing the increases across the U.S. not just in Silicon Valley or Wall Street And the reason for it is simple One of the primary reasons companies invest in internship programs is to produce the potential pipeline of talent for the future And we know from our research that this pays off Tom busby Bloomberg radio Debbie.
Compilation of Ronald Reagan's Successful Speeches on Foreign Policy
"I just want you to hear a relatively short compilation Of some of the things Reagan said during his presidency an enormously successful presidency Where he got enormous popular votes won the Electoral College numbers never seen before since probably George Washington And had a fantastically successful foreign policy Take a listen This is from again a group of his speeches just clips from the speeches Some of his best speeches against tyranny Cut 24 go And to every person trapped in tyranny whether in the Ukraine Hungary Czechoslovakia Cuba Vietnam We send our love and support and tell them they are not alone Their message must be your struggle is our struggle your dream is our dream and someday you too will be free Hey miss poop John Paul told his beloved polls We are blessed by divine heritage We are children of God and we can not be slaves History shows that it is precisely when totalitarian regimes begin to decay from within It is precisely when they feel the first real stirrings of domestic unrest That they seek to reassure their own people of their vast and unchallengeable power through imperialistic expansion or foreign adventure So the era ahead of us is one that will see grave challenges and be fought with danger Yet it's one that I firmly believe will end in the triumph of the civilized world and the supremacy of its beliefs in individual liberty of representative government and the rule of law under

How Chip Lake Became a Political Consultant
"Let's start off chip. One sort of give a little bit of your background and how you got started and all this. And the good part about it is almost like up front here to sort of keep us both out. Neither one of us are in this cycle really. I mean, we know campaigns and we've helped some others, but for the most part, chip and our experiencing something neither one of us experienced in a long, long time, and that is the ability to just talk about these campaigns without being indirectly involved in them. And I think I know from my perspective, it's been a refreshing. I know talking to you if it has been for you as well. But how did you get into this? It's a great question, Doug. So as you had mentioned, I went to auburn and I was to age myself. I was an auburn in the early to mid 90s. And long story short was a member of the college Republicans at auburn. And we had a state party chairman from an adjacent state, Georgia, come down to speak to us at one of our chapter meetings on, I think it was Tuesday night. Because his daughter was a member of our was a member of our college Republicans group. And that person was rusty Paul, who was the state chairman at the time for the Georgia Republican Party. He since went on to become a state senator. And now he is mayor of Sandy Springs. And I walked up to him after the after he gave a speech and I asked him if he had any internships available. And he said, absolutely call, you know, call me, you know, next week and we'll get you set up. And the reality is the rest is history. I was a political science and public administration major down there and I really didn't know what I wanted to do for a living. And, you know, I'm 49 years old right now, and I still feel like I'm in that position, you know? I mean, as you mentioned, this is my first cycle. Really, since I was a teenager, where I haven't been directly involved in the campaign. And it's been it's been a lot of fun to be able to watch this from the
'Everything You Need to Know About Abortion for Teens'
"This brand new book, everything you need to know about abortion fatigues. Do they want to know? Well, see, they need to know. That's the point. Because why? Planned Parenthood is preying on them in the schools in high schools. They're on college campuses. So like it or not, they need to know about abortion. So what I do in the books is I store it back and I tell them about normal corby. Sandra Cano. I even tell them about doctor Bernard nathanson, who father Frank and I knew. So I showed them how it was all built on lies. Then I introduced them. And this is what's great. In the middle of the book, they let me put in pictures of the unborn child. Like a baby book. Starting at 7 weeks. So you can't buy the lies, the clump assessment. When you see that, it's extremely. And I challenge the young people, you know what? Why don't you ask your parents for your baby picture starting from when you were in the womb? Because as you know, if you want the baby, everyone's showing the pictures. If not, it's a glob of cells. So I show them the truth, and then I tell them what happens in an abortion. Exactly. Comparing that it's not good medicine. And then I show them the voices of the women who bought the lie from silent no more, and the damage.
Do Black People Need More Equality or Equity?
"I had a college song a minute ago named James and he said that one of the biggest issues that we're facing in the United States of America is to defeat Russia and the second most dying dire issue is equality in this country. And I could not disagree with him more because there's a difference between equality and equity. I think he meant he wanted more equity in this country and I feel like that equality is already accomplished. You have an equal opportunity to do your best. You can't control if your parents were drug dealers or drug users, you can't control if you were born into poverty, but you can't control what you do every single day, 24 hours in a day that you get, you can control if you're making positive decisions in that day, are you making negative decisions in a day?
Why Are More Than 90% of American Children in Public Schools?
"I've got to ask one naive question at the beginning. So I've been an educator for far too long, but at the advanced level, so I taught in a private college and then I taught in the Defense Department for almost a decade. What I don't understand is why are more than 90% of all students in America in public schools, because this is the richest nation in the world until recently, we're based upon free markets and choice, my expectation as an immigrant coming to this country. I thought, well, well, if people want good education, why isn't there a market there to provide it? It's what 6, 7% of private schools? Yes, very low. It's about 6 or 7, 8% of kids. And private schools was because if you want to exercise that exit option to attend a school that you're not residentially assigned to, you essentially have to pay twice. Just talk about explain that. So essentially, we're already paying over $15,000 per child per year through the tax system towards these government run schools that are quote unquote free, but we've poured more and more resources into the system year and year after year since 1960, the U.S. education system has poured about an increase of about 287% after adjusting for inflation in per people education spending in the government run school system and outcomes have been flat. Is there a number for the average student? How much you pay in America? The most recent data, which is before the pandemic, which is a whole nother story, was already about 15 to $16,000. It's obviously higher in some states over the other, but average private school tuition nationwide is only about ten or 11,000 or 12,000 paying more as a taxpayer for substandard product quote unquote, which you really have no control over because you're locked in via zip code.
Professor Nicholas Giordano Talks About Push Back in Academia
"We're talking to Nick jordano, teaches political science at Suffolk community college. You know, Nick, we don't typically have people in the academy who are coming from where you're coming from. So to me, it's kind of wonderful news that you are teaching political science and that you see these things. You get these things. Do you get a lot of pushback? When you're in academia and you express conservative philosophies. It's not something where you're going to get not get pushed back. Of course, pushback is going to come. I have to say, my college, it's actually a great nobody bothers me and the reason that they don't is because we're more in touch with the student body, which is a bunch of people that live life. I mean, some of them are have children, some of them are taking care of elderly parents, some of them are working and going to school. We're not in that four year university bubble where everyone comes from the same background and engages in the group think mentality. Interesting. So it's easier that way. However, there are more conservatives in academia than people realize. And I constantly get emails saying, you know, keep speaking out, keep speaking up. And then I email them back. Well, why aren't you speaking up? I mean, the reality is that if more of us spoke up, maybe the situation wouldn't be as bad as it is today. Unfortunately, conservatives and Republicans, they've kind of ignored the problems and allowed these problems to metastasize. Some of them went into business to make money, and they didn't pay attention to the school boards or the state education departments. Others just thought that problem wasn't as bad as it really was. But we're finding out, particularly what COVID, how bad the problem really is within not just education, not just certain aspects that a bureaucracy, but the entire
Prof. Nicholas Giordano on the Patriot Act and Your Loss of Freedom
"As promised, Nick jordano, professor Nicholas jordano is my guest. He's a Professor of political science at Suffolk community college, a native New Yorker. I love it. I'm also a native New Yorker. But I had a sojourn in Connecticut where I lost the accent. So I apologize. You're a Professor of political science who has been talking about a lot of the stuff that I talk about on this program, which is to say the growth of government bureaucracy and the growth of government at the expense of freedom. So how did you, how did you get to that place? Were you raised in such a way that this was on your radar? Did this come to you as you did your studies? Well, I'm a student of history and the founding fathers made it clear that we want to limited government. We want a small government because governments continually grow expand abuse their power. And so we have to hold government accountable. And then what I saw with the Patriot Act, beginning to unfold, that's what concerned me because I was in Homeland Security. When you say the Patriot Act, talk about what year was the Patriot Act. Shortly after 9 11. So normally it takes about two years to get pieces of legislation through most pieces of legislation never see the light of day. But the Patriot Act passed within two weeks. And it was an encompassing bill that really changed the dynamics of the national security framework of the United States. And people said, well, if you don't support it, then you must be doing something wrong. And many conservatives. You're with that. You're with the terrorists. Correct.
Geo Tracking and the 'Gay Bathhouse' Argument
"I'm continuing a kind of highlight or analysis of my conversation with Philip bump in The Washington Post. And he disputes the validity or at least precision and the accuracy of geo tracking based upon an expert that he interviewed one guy who said, well, it's only accurate to about 30 feet. Well, that's not true. But let's say it is true. I don't think it changes our conclusions at all. For the simple reason that you've got a Dropbox. And you've got a mule within 30 feet, remember a human body is 5 or 6 feet. So 30 feet puts you basically within three or four human lengths of the Dropbox. You're in that vicinity. You're in that geofence or circle. Okay. And if it was only one Dropbox, you could make you could say, well, wait a minute. Maybe the guy was stopped to eat some popcorn. Or was reaching for his wallet? It happened to stop within that radius, but this is why true the votes high bar and by the high bar I mean, ten or more drop boxes. Totally settles the issue, because quite frankly, if you're within 30 feet of ten or more dropboxes, obviously you are going to those drop boxes to do what? Well, there's only one thing you can do. So you remember these aren't post boxes. You can't be writing a letter to your best friend from college. These drop boxes have one purpose. And that is to put in mail in ballots. They're ballot dropboxes. So the only reason to go to them is to dump ballots. So in fact, there's a guy who made a comment on social media. He goes, dinesh, you know, he goes, listen, he goes, what if I were to show that your phone was within 30 feet of a bunch of gay bath houses? Would you be okay with me saying that your regular frequenter of gay bathhouses dinesh and that I have proof that you that you that you did that? And I replied in a kind of a quote tweet and I say, hey, pal, listen. If you can find my phone within 30 feet of let's say ten or more gay bath houses in the period of let's say two weeks, yeah, you can reasonably conclude that I'm a regular customer. Why else would I be within the close vanity vicinity of not one not two? Not three, but ten or more bathhouses. So yes, use your own common sense and draw your own
David Catron: Will the Democrats Accept the Midterm Results?
"Now we were talking about elections And I mentioned some time ago a piece by David catron over there at the American spectator was a great piece with a Democrats except the midterm results And they're clearly laying the foundation for not accepting the results So they accuse you me and Trump have not accepting election results and yet that's what they're all about Anytime a Republican wins its due to some kind of corruption or races or something And you know you would think the bushes would understand this because the Democrats and the media considered him an president for the longest time as a result of the 2000 Electoral College win he didn't win the popular vote but the litigation that took place in Florida He was calling a legitimate president by most of the Democrats in most of the media but that was then and now bush loves being loved But he does point out does catron That the Democrats are likely to get whacked There is more than the usual bombast he says we're getting from these politicians And he also points out the criminalizing political opponents The New York Times with this January reports with this January 6th so called insurrection committee But he believes the increase steadily metastasized into a mccarthyite inquisition Based on the proposition that former president Trump in a long list of so called far right figures were involved in a criminal conspiracy To undermine the results of the 2020 election And that's where the Department of Justice is headed
Jeremy Story Dared to Expose Local Texas School Board Corruption
"We turn to my friend old friend, Jeremy story. We knew each other here in New York. He is now in Texas. He's a pastor. He heads up campus renewal reaching out to college kids. And he has been through an experience that is chilling. And I am excited to get the word out about what is happening. Jeremy welcome. Thank you for having me today. I appreciate it. To my audience who knows nothing about what happened. Start from the beginning and explain what happened. You were in Texas, tell the story. It's a long explanation, but a short version of it is that we were basically trying to expose the actions of a school board who had illegally hired a superintendent back in June. And we were, we realized they had illegally hired him. Then we realized that he had allegedly the allegations in which we then later found out to be very credible and true and fell to evidence that he had threatened his he was having an affair. He had threatened her when she refused to have an abortion and basically threatened her that he would try to come and give her that abortion through an assault. Through a shield approach to school board, the school board ignored her and instead told the superintendent that she had come to them, which then precipitated an alleged assault at her home. And they covered it all
Naomi Wolf on Living in a Time Where Virtue Is Out of Fashion
"Naomi, look, you and I were in college at a time where I feel like even the concept of virtue was already out of fashion. It was mocked, honor. These things were already being locked in the culturally elite circles where we went, that that's for rubes. That's for people in flyover country to talk about patriotism, or love of country, love of truth. What is truth? That's been percolating for many decades. And this is the fruit. Yeah. You really opened my eyes to that in our early conversation, the you're right. And I do think that the CCP has had a profound impact on college campuses. There's Institutes called Confucius Institutes that were opened across the country. I'm sure you've spoken about that before. And I see the impact on our curriculum and it's making me rethink everything, like feminism, feminism should be about embracing women's role in every aspect of our lives, including maternity and family. And in the west, it's been distilled down to just abortion, right? Well, that's kind of a satanic and Marxist way to look at this complex issue of how women can be free. And there's so many examples. You know, you and I talked about deconstruction and how it strips poetry of meaning and it strips literature of meaning and its trips these are culture of dimensional meaning, human meaning. Will this escalate it and I really tease this out in the bodies of others where I look at what got targeted culturally and what got targeted in terms of faith, culture makes us strong in cultures where the western values of the lessons about morality and honor and meaning get transmitted. Well, culture got targeted. You know, you could go to a liquor store, you could go to a pot store in some states, you couldn't go to the theater, you couldn't go to hear a concert, you know, you couldn't hear Mozart in a group of human
Doug Is Joined by Patrick Assalone of the Target Trading Academy
"Talked a lot about the issues out there of economy and investments and where the inflation is going and how the Biden administration basically has zero clue to what they're doing. And it's become very obvious, but it also affects everyday life, whether it's your gas process, your food process. But how about your investments? How about the things in life that actually can make you money, you know, set you up in your retirement accounts, do the things that you want to do so that you have some independence and financial stability. Well, I'm going to tell you right now, if you're going out talking and looking out around the world for the get great schemes, the folks who are telling you how to do it and frankly, if you look into their background, they got no money either. Not the way to do it. And so today, I've come across a guy that I've got to know a like a lot. I love his attitude. You're going to just fall for his passion. Because just great to watch. Patrick Aslan is someone who's going to talk about teaching you and what his company does is teaching you about investments and how to trade. And he also has an interesting background as well. So this is going to be one of the fun episodes of the dot Collins podcast. Sit back strap in because you're going around. You're going to want to take notes on this one. Patrick for having me. Thanks for being a part of the college podcast. Patrick explained to people now and I'm going to let you do it because it's your baby, you do it better than anybody. Explain to me what where you're at right now in your life. What you're doing and how you training and I'll give you the clicking. Do do several things here. First and foremost, I have a trading education company target trading academy where we teach people how to trade in the futures market. Not the stock market, not options that stuff is way too rigged way too dangerous and absolutely not in the retail consumers favor. It's a rigged game. I can we can have a 5 hour show and I can go through a piece by piece on how it's written. The futures market on the other hand is a zero sum game and it runs roughly 24 hours a day. So for example, let's say when New York closes at four 15 5 o'clock in the afternoon, you're stuck in a position. You can't get out. Well, when you're in the futures market, you can protect yourself roughly 24 hours and I teach people how to do this, how not to be in the market, how not to have a position, how not to have exposure, how to manage your risk, where to get in and where to get out. It's a real simple prospect.

The Plot to Subvert the Western Judeo-Christian Tradition of the US
"Folks, welcome back. We're talking to the authors of battle for the American mind uprooting a century of miseducation, Pete hegseth and David Goodwin. So we're talking about what amounts to a conspiracy to subvert the western judeo Christian tradition baked into the heart of the United States of America. And there's no denying it. People like Dewey, they were on a crusade, and they have up till now, succeeded. Yes, they have. And you know what? They didn't know what the destination would be, per se. They just knew where the destination was away from. So it was always progress away from the western Christian paideia, the biblical roots of our and free thinking roots of the nexus of Athens and Jerusalem. They wanted to move away from that. That was progress. So you say conspiracy, that's not a wrong term. We use plot or heist because they passed it off to the next group of radical thinkers who carried the ball down the field based on how much God and other basic values have been stripped away. So enter the Frankfurt school, enter critical theory, which where did it land? A hundred blocks from here at Columbia University at the teacher's college. And these are marxists who fled Hitler while our boys are fighting over in Europe and World War II. And they are greeted with open arms with their radical views soon to infuse into the teacher's college. And within a couple of decades, one third of teachers in America at elite schools had been taught by the critical theorists of the Frankfurt school. So how do you get critical race theory in your zoom classroom? It is in the curriculum and the pedagogy of how the entire educational industrial complex works. And when you unravel it all, it goes back to those early efforts and each step which we lay out the unions, which used to be conservative teacher associations that ended up scripture to teachers to use in the classroom, captured by the unions. Well, then the unions create the Department of Education in a giveaway to Jimmy
The Left Values Lies Over Truth
"About PolitiFact. An organization that lies like a proud proud that was called truth, PolitiFact is called fact PolitiFact is the fact what probably was the truth. They used the name and they lie. I wrote a piece that I didn't write a piece. I said in a broadcast that if you find a noose or racist graffiti on a dormitory door and in college, the odds are that it was done by a black student. And they declared that false, they offered a zero zero evidence as to its falsehood. I'm thinking of suing them. I don't know if I will. I'm thinking of suing them. And the sheep professor who said I lied. They lied. They changed what I said. They said that, well, hate crimes are greater. I didn't talk about hate crimes. I just talk about one specific thing, so they changed the subject. PolitiFact lies because the pointer institute that sponsors it is a left wing institute. Anything the left takes over is dishonest. Truth is not a left wing value. If you ever use PolitiFact, you're wasting your time unless you
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene on Her Ridiculous Court Case
"I'm back with Marjorie Taylor Greene and we were talking about Ukraine and of course we expect zelensky to be Ukraine first. Of course, that's his country, but weirdly we are surprised when people in America are America first. Let's pivot a little bit to the court case that you found yourself. And I mean, absolutely bizarre situation in which it seems like there was an attempt to prevent you running for reelection. I mean, you got was it activist groups? Who is behind this effort to try to block you from running again? For asking about that, this group is called free speech for the people, but they don't believe in free speech because they were trying to rip my name off the ballot silence the speech of voters in my district and not allow them to be able to reelect me and send me back to Congress. This is a group that operates on dark money. They receive their donations from other 5 O ones and foundations. So you can't see who is really donating to them. And they have a few donations that are public, but most for the most part, you only see groups and foundations that donate to them. These people are a group of attorneys from New York and Massachusetts. They have decided to try to attack our elections, especially our elections in Georgia by filing these candidacy qualification challenges, claiming that by the Fourteenth Amendment Fourteenth Amendment, section three that I supposedly waged an insurrection against the United States, which I absolutely did not. I objected to vote against Joe Biden's fraudulent Electoral College votes, dinesh, and I would probably do it again today, and I would proudly do it again tomorrow. And I'm so thankful for your movie 2000 mules because that exposes why I voted to object.

"So I really encourage parents to try and let students form their own opinions and perspective based on their college visit and sometimes that means parents not saying as much or maybe asking the students more questions about what they think or what they're looking for instead of giving their own opinions such as oh, I didn't realize this was an older campus or I don't really love this city. Little remarks like that can really affect a student's opinion and maybe make them not as encouraged to seriously consider a college. So I really encourage parents to allow students. This should be a student centered process where students are really in the lead trying to figure things out and that's hard to do if parents are giving a lot of opinions in the process. So it is okay to ask questions too, some of the same questions we had, we had given for students. Those are okay for parents to ask, but just for parents to be careful about giving too many opinions early on before a student has formed their own. And as a last question we're going to do an insider tip. So as a college counselor we visit a lot of the colleges as well. And so what do you pay attention to when you're doing a campus tour? I was going to say you can really tell when there's genuine enthusiasm coming from the guide about something. And I think that can just be really telling about whether or not they're like, for example, I was just finishing doing program at Whitman college and Walla Walla Washington. Lovely spot. And huge shout out to the Whitman team for putting together a great tour program. But one of the things that I noticed the students were doing, where they were always hyping up and shouting out like their peers about things that they were doing. And that's not something that I necessarily have seen at all college campuses. There's been colleges where I've gone to where the guide really talked only about their own accolades and things like that. And definitely, I think any time where you see a certain energy or the student lighting up about something, I think that really can be pretty telling about a little bit about what the school values. And again, this is one person. This is one person's experience and you can't have that sole interaction be the end all be all of your entire view of the school. But I do think there's something to be said for seeing those kind of queues and just like that body language or the ways their eyes light up or when they're talking about a certain class or professor or memory when there's more than just what they're saying but the way that they're saying it and the way that they're carrying themselves and just those other cues and signals of enthusiasm or just excitement or I don't know, fulfillment, I think that can really be something to try to just keep an eye out for and to really take the heart when you notice it. And I really like to hear each student each tour guide story and to hear about the kinds of things they are getting involved in on campus..

"Institute at my school the students start to get paired with college counselors. We asked them on the survey, like, oh, have you done any college visits? Have you gone and visited schools? And this is after they go to a presentation that we do about particularly about highly selective schools, which sometimes we call highly rejective schools. And I think when we see so many students who send in these responses to these surveys that are like, oh yeah, I went to Boston and I only visited Harvard and now I really wish I visited other places after seeing just the reality of what the college admission landscape can look like. So I think visiting schools with different ranges of selectivity, schools you may not have heard of before, but if they're within driving distance, I think that's a really, for example, I went to college in western Massachusetts. There are like 6 colleges all within the ten minute drive from each other, and definitely for a student who's going to visit Worcester polytechnic institute, WPI, or college of the holy cross, where I went, love it. Assumption college, where my sister ran is right down the road, right? I think what's your state? Also right there. So I definitely think that that's something that I hope students make time for and just open their eyes and possibility because you'll notice I think as Ivan said, a lot of similar things on different campuses, but also a lot of those distinctions or things that if you notice you really like at some places, you can start to call your search a little more or be like, okay gee, maybe like Eddie was saying, I actually didn't think I would like a rural school. I went out there and actually it was a super cool and there was a lot on campus and just a lot of many of these places lots of scenic beauty around and outdoor recreational adventure things, whatnot. I think that's definitely also something I'd want to plug as well. So now that we've talked about some of the planning pieces, let's get to actually what you're going to do while you're on this campus. So what suggestions do you have about talking to students while you're on campus? Who do you talk to? What should you ask to get the quote unquote real story? Oh, from the drama of it all. We did say we like the drama. We do like the drug. She's going. Great question. One first stop is definitely the admissions office. I think admissions offices really do invest a lot of time and resources and energy on trying to be able to offer programming that can give students as much of a full picture of campus as possible. But I do think to the point of that last sentence, right? What should you ask to get to the quote unquote real story? I do think that that's definitely something to be mindful of on your different college campuses. If people ask you about things that you'd like to change about the campus, tell them an honest answer. And that doesn't mean going off on an explosive tirade, totally just like dragging some people through the mud. But to do it in a respectful and thoughtful way and to kind of offer some perspective and potential areas that the school is approaching to addressing some of those things. I think hopefully when you visit campuses, I do hope that the guides are real with you and that they are giving them that the real story. But I also do think that every campus is different and maybe some guys are just more comfortable kind of being a lot more neutral. So I think you might just experience kind of a little bit of variance with that depending on the school and the way that the admissions office and just the culture of the school maybe cultivate those visit programs..

"Philosophy. Thank you. A lot of factors consider for sure. So where do students begin? What questions did students be asking themselves that they begin compiling their college lists? I think there's just so many places to start honestly trying to sort through all the information that's being thrown at you, whether it's from the college website, through the college visits, social media, their friends are also talking a lot, and that can be really hard to navigate through. I think for me, and we've talked about it earlier today is that why, why am I going here? What am I looking for? Who do I want to surround myself with? What kind of people do I want to be in class with, but also on the weekends, hang out and do whatever that might be. And so really kind of looking at a bunch of different factors that Deanna has really done a great job chatting about one of the other really big things that I'm also trying to help with our students is don't also focus on other folks are doing really look inside yourself and see what are the most important things to me. I know we chatted about flexibility and I always try to remind them who you are right now is going to be different when you're senior. I've had so many situations with students where miss JT, that's what they call me back home. I want to go to one, two, three, four, 5. It has to be in California, this or that. And then at the end of the senior year, guess what? You're going somewhere completely different, and it always makes me laugh, but I appreciate that because I can always have those choices to look back on, but it really shows you how we evolve and changes people. I'm just saying there's some great stuff in California. There is. I'm obviously biased, but there's some pretty dull things and pretty dope people too..

"Oklahoma soon to be the sec. Going against two lane and louisiana visit texas and the following day. We have a solid matchup between notre dame and florida state of all of these harry and there are plenty to choose from which these early matchups catches your eye. I like louisiana and texas first off as far as the region. Cajun's goes you know. They were really good last year. I don't think they got nearly enough. Love or at least not as much love as coastal carolina did and as well as cincinnati in terms of one of the best g. five teams that we saw last year there returning a lot of talent and i really wanna see truthfully what billy napier is going to do for an encore. He was one of the most coveted coaching candidates this off season. Obviously he stuck around. And now you get to open up with texas. And i think as far as they go steve occasions first game and i think we all are going to be watching texas a little bit more closely at the beginning of the season given all the conversations that we've been having with them going to the sec. Listen i'm so excited for this clemson georgia game and for obvious reasons. Because of the playoff and tough but listen. We got three children of the i five corridor on this show today and we all grew up with this georgia clips and thing. They just disappeared and so to me. That's a game from our childhood. That should be played every year. They're they're just a couple of miles separated. They're separated by state line. So i'm excited about it. But how in the world did i not realize. That penn state was going. Wisconsin weak point. I was kind of going through week. One stuff today might wait. This games. haven't at noon on the first saturday of the season in. You're talking about the two leading candidates whether it's the mysteriously accurate fbi or whether it's sweaty sports writers voting in a preseason poll. Everyone agrees that wisconsin more than likely go win their division in penn state. If someone's going to challenge in ohio states division that is probably them. We're going to get that started in week. One and i kind of blame texas and oklahoma. I didn't even know that was until i come on. I can't even tell you the memories. I have clinton we had a divided neighborhood and like you literally had to stop speaking you. Just you just shut down for a few days in order to keep the peace when clips in georgia plate. it's hard to believe. Rivalry stopped for a brief time. So obviously i can't wait for that one.

"Are foreign. Why that is what we talk so so much about it. One of the other interesting scenarios of course is how. It affects a potential playoff expansion. Here's what the commissioner said the pac twelve it's unfortunately likely to delay approval of a cfp. Expansive plan i think there's going to be a realignment fallout. We have to get through before we understand what format for an extended. College football playoff works best for all of college football. And that's interesting to me ryan because it looks like a foregone conclusion therefore hot minute that we would go to twelve teams. So what do you think happens when when we revisit the plan for playoff expansion of still sooner than later and listen people a lot more dialed in heatherton doubt into the playoffs situation than i am have said that yes. It's going to slow this down a little bit. It's still gonna move faster than it was three months ago and at the end of the day the motivation for all of this is money in the wallet and at the end of the day. The reason that you expand the cfp yes. You can say it's parody. Yes you can say us including the reality is it's about making more cash and so whatever you're not gonna take the longest road to get to that cash you're gonna take the shortest and so it might not be as short as it was going to be but it's still going to be that long. Yeah ryan i agree with you. At the end of the day like the all these schools everybody is all about making money and right now in the short term. I think yeah you might have some people that are in that committee who are looking at greg. Sankey little funny because it's like. Hey you were having those meetings about expanding your conference at the same time. We were trying to expand the playoff. We're going to try to slow this down for a little bit. But then they're also remember. Hey if we do slow this down. That's less money for us. You know in the short term so this is ultimately. I think still going to happen sooner rather than later. But there's definitely going to be some salt air from some of the other people involved in that process. Listen gentlemen the bigger the pie. The bigger the slice and in general. Everybody likes that so ultimately that's what will went out here. And i agree ryan with you that this will. This will still say on the fast track. Maybe maybe so it down a little bit but not a whole lot okay. let's hear. Shall we talk about the upcoming season. It's about that time we'll start looking ahead weeks one right around the corner. We'll have more on that coming up as we get set for the twenty twenty one college football season..

"Together. If you didn't know better ryan you'd think they were all making s'mores and singing come by campfire. It is what it is behind closed doors but you know the unanimous vote does say something about the public face of this. Do you anticipate that. In fact they'll be perhaps clear communication moving forward. I think there will be. And i'll say this about greg sankey. He has always been very upfront about everything. He gives a cell phone number out probably too much. You probably wishes he hadn't given it out so much over the last week in particular and that's why this caught so many people off guard whether it's someone that knows in through work or whether it's someone that deals with and through business but yes you you bitch. Fourteen vote. We said this on the show yesterday. This is how the does things now. I will also say this and tweeted it last night. Last night was probably a great night donor. Liquor store in college station because they're swallow a lot of pride right now to participate in that vote. So yes it's fourteen. Oh but But i think there's still probably a lot emotionally for a lot of people to get around without a doubt ryan and you know one of my favorite things about what sankey said is. It was just a really relatable moment. Right where he kind of just decided. Hey i'm going to do the thing that i wanna do and ask for forgiveness later. And that's what he's done and he also really kind of buttered up texas 'em right they're like hey like we really appreciate them understanding even though we kind of did this behind their back. We knew you were going to like it. But we're all going to be richer for it and it was going to happen anyway so i thought that was funny. I thought he played it very well and eventually. Obviously we're getting this thing done in texas and oklahoma. Going to be in the sec. And we're going to have just incredible football schedules in that conference. For many years to come the reality is that listen. You don't have to agree with everything that a ceo commissioner does that the boss does but if all they keep doing is making more money and making you the cornerstone of the sport in the business within which you're making your living then you say thank you very much and that's what's happened to greg. Thank you right now. Listen if you're a good steward of with with what you've been charged i. It's hard to argue. I will say this. I'm a big fan of asking forgiveness instead of permission. So looks like that's going to work out here as well but as.

"I think really paying attention to how colleges have interacted with large groups of people who might be marginalized people throughout this pandemic. We'll say a lot to you as well about how they might might or might not support. You want your there. We really want students to make decisions about an authentic experience. So this isn't just about glossy brochures. It's not just about the admission session. It really is about those directing gauge mitzvah students and in perspective student being able to talk to a current student. Y- of current students are engaged with talking to prospective students. They care about their institution that also says something about community when you have faculty members engaged with prospective students they care about the institution that says something about it when you think about students and whether it's campus as a hispanic serving institution or a campus has a commitment to first generation students. You know when people talk about those things and no those things you can tell that. It's part of the campus. It's instant label tara for some of our listeners. They are thinking about starting their post-secondary experience their college experience at a community college either as a destination in and of itself for an associate's degree or perhaps as a stepping stone to a four year college. What sort of advice would you give to listeners. Who are thinking about community college right now for those reasons. First of all congratulations. You've made the choice to higher education and an affordable one and so. I think that that's first and foremost. I would say if you're going to get on campus. Instead of taking virtual classes like many of us have been doing get their drives their park. Make sure that you know where it's at rear classes are just like you would any other college treated as if you are going away to school. Even if it's just a couple of miles down the road from you so engaged in that. I think find an adviser on campus that you can go talk to and you can start building your course plan early if your goal is to transfer..

"Need more time. How would you suggest they bring that sentiment to the attention of a college or university. I honestly ask. I mean like we've talked about already. The worst thing they can do is say no. And so if you need more time ask if you need money ask if you need anything any help ask and the worst that they can do is say no. I think that the message that i want families in students to hear flip the script. You're in charge. You are in the driver's seat of this process. And this is your money in your education so you need to make the right choice. But you're empowered to ask all the questions. We talked earlier about this.

How can they as part of their due diligence size up how a college or university is responding to these forces and sort of incorporating them into campus life. I think it's a really good question. And many of us on the college side and when we think about admissions programs they couched jacques as recruitment programs one of the best ways for a student to understand what the experience is like. And whether there's gonna be a community where they feel that they belong. They connect and their supported is to connect with current students. I think one of the important ways is to see if colleges and universities are having sessions with students. And i'll and i'll just give them perspective for my own institution..

"Confirming to that institution to let that institution known that you're planning to attend enough all. What is the timeline for housing. Those kinds of things so parents and families can also start to see what is the capacity for the institution to provide up to have a family community when my students use to go there and so. That's another practical piece of advice. That families can engage in. They can engage with the parent or family office on that particular campus. Build on something. Rachel said which prompted the piece that student when you make decisions once. You've moved to college off your list. Let us now. Breaking up is hard. But it's actually courteous to let the college know if they are no longer in the running for you because then they can turn their attention to the rest of the students that they are working on. It's not going to hurt our feelings. We're going to be sorry to see go. It's a bit of clarity. That is kind to folks in admissions. Land i do think that one of the things i think is really helpful in this process for parents. We spent a lotta time on the finance. But i feel like where. I i see that process sometimes go off. The rails is when the family has not been honest with the student about finance piece And so get hung up on. I want to go to the school. And i'm getting ready to go. There and the financial package comes and then parents say no. We can't do that. It gets to be a really dicey process at that point. And so i think being really honest and upfront with your your students and i know that. That's a really tough spot. I imagine for parents to really have candid conversations with soon around finances but to the degree that it relates to the college process. Think about being up front and honest about what that looks like from the very start so that the student doesn't get hung up on places that ultimately may never work in the families..

"In austin texas. Welcome ken jonathan. Rachel and tara so we've titled today's episode student empowerment in college admissions and i particularly like that word empowerment which will be coming back to throughout our conversation. We've got lots of ground to cover. So let's get started so jonathan first question for you. The elephant in the room is the corona virus. How has it impacted this year's process both the decisions of the colleges but also more importantly for the conversation. We're having today for the decision making process for students and parents. I think the biggest thing that i've seen really is this big amount of uncertainty among students who have not been able to get on college campuses and so in a way where many of our students prior to this year would have made a decision months ago and would be really Engaged on that college's campus both virtually or in person going to visit programs. Going accepted student programs already connecting with roommates. I continue to have my door. Have students come in and out. Who are still saying. No mr farrell. I don't know where. I'm going to school next year and rachel for all the ways. This process is different than it was say two years ago so any family. That feels that way a family. That's gone through it before it's different. It's more complicated. It's more stressful and yet are there ways for example that students and their families are very much still in the driver's seat right now as strange as that might sound to them. I appreciate that question. Jack and also at jonathan shared. I appreciate it so much because that's one of the things that i think we want to convey to students is that they are in the driver's seat so colleges may have rendered their admission and let students know if they're mad at enter waitlisted or whatever. The situation is but for so many students across the country they are holding emission decision. And they get to decide where they're going to college next year so they have those offers of admission and they get to choose from those offer. So it's really their decision. Their families decision. And i think what what's happened during this pandemic is that we've all really understood and really engaged with the fact that we are serving students. This isn't just about a university. It's not just about high school experience about how we're serving the student and so many of us have identified how we can leverage you whether it's zuma other mediums to engage with students so our campus at many campuses across the country have really doubled down on that focus of direct student contact. Having current students meet with prospective students having families meet with our admissions officers in our missions teams but also our college deans in our faculty in our current students and even other parents and so many of us are partnering with high schools and families and our alumni to help.

"Bloomers and how to help them develop their goals ambitions and talents on their way to and through college. Thank you all for joining me today. So if we could start with you can you help us kind of understand a late bloomers? How would you describe Blake bloomers? I think it's a abroad group. And the comparison point is in today's Day and age so many people think about the most selective colleges to get into they identify that as the college process and those students who are on. That path are very often walking into high school almost already for college. They're very accomplished. They continue that accomplishment in some ways their finished products and students who developed later or mature later. Which when you look at brain studies is normal. Most people aren't going to reach their full intellectual capacity until the twenty five but if they're reaching that maturity or where their interests are sometime later in high school maybe Sophomore Year Junior Year. They finally start clicking pursuing those interests. Those are those. They bloomers in terms of students. Things that may happen to them earlier on in life sometimes socioeconomic status. Yeah has an impact on that? Sometimes you know if they're moving ten times that's certainly going to have an impact on that so that match process which is difficult for all certainly adolescence. That adds in another part of the equation. Another challenge for them to be able to go through that kind of a natural process. The earlier times in life can often have an impact on once they get into high school I think Titan into that is most high schools are very traditional and how they approach education. And you don't get to start seeing many electives until you get up to the junior senior year and sometimes students just aren't exposed to things because traditional study of English traditional math. These history. These things you have to take that as a society we've defined make towards an education and then all of a sudden junior senior year. You get to take that elective at your school. That might be insured engineering or creative writing and it sparks that interest and they finally realize that. Wait school could be great and they go from being this person struggling to find their PATU. Wow there's a purpose told us. I found a lot of a number of late. Bloomers that I've worked with. I've worked both in college admissions and also as a college counselor and they often have a very distinct passion in a particular area the earlier curriculum freshman sophomore year. They really don't have a chance to explore those opportunities on decide one of the thoughts that we were using high school as the vents of looking at it but there are also certain things that are limited to students based on their age their outside high school For instance. If you want to volunteer in Baltimore which is where I'm from with animals in the SPCA or the humane society. You have to be these seventeen or your parents have to be able to make with you. An of both. Your parents are working. And you don't have that adult to go with you. You're limited not being able to explore that until certain age and that just the mature building to find that passion into your older for parents who may be out there. Listening heavily bloomer. What advice would you have for them to find some of those pathways to success? You talked about. I think I would say. Don't over. Water it or don't force it. I mean we all have that plant rate that we have in our homes that we've tried to grow quicker force to bloom or anything so I would say that It's important to kind of be there. Let it grow naturally and everything and when the time is right it'll grow but don't try to force it and I think that's a struggle oftentimes for for parents because they see the other parents and then student and their peers taking that correct path of you know taking all the right classes and getting ready for college and so on so I. My recommendation would be to look at your student keeping in mind that their individual and not to bow to that peer pressure or that'd be the students peers or the parent peers. Because that's that's a real difficult one. When you seen many of the other students taking that in college track and then your your students your son or daughter is a little bit different. So to make sure that their patient with them and cultivating and knowing that maybe college. Isn't you know right after high school? Isn't this the best route for them? At that time. Are THERE OFF RAMPS? That are productive for late bloomers. Can you think of any of students that you've worked with that have valued from taking a gap year or from taking a different route? Maybe a two year school to a four year school. That might look a little bit different than some of their peers. Sure I've had students do both routes about students I should even sits more than both routes really becomes more individual not of its students do gap years of had students take a year off to work which still different because when I think of gap year I think a program verse working and trying to you know in the work world. Then I've had students who've gone straight to two year college before they're looking at four year college and they're also some other programs out there that you can use to explore those possible interest. I think all those great options and what you need to be trying to do with your son or daughter is this and talk to them and trying to not not. The societal norms of you have to go right to college and has to be a four year college that has to be the most prestigious name instead. Try and figure out well. What's your end goal? What do you think you want your life to be like? What do you think you want to be doing and start having those general conversations in this to what the child is saying because they might have some great ideas and you can explore them a lot of different ways and I also think they don't discount the career technical programs that we have that allows students to go straight into the trades after one year of Going into a trades program and getting that certificate students can have careers that make great starting salaries and they can do that in years. So those are great programs to look into if students don't want to commit to a full for your program so I always emphasize when I'm working with students and I've seen many phone of this category that if they choose not to go to college right afterwards whatever they choose to do they in. The parents need to know that it doesn't have to be the standard full semester full year. It could be a couple months. It could be. They could do three different things over the course of a year to explore their passions and so on so oftentimes because people think of that standard route of the semester system or the year system. And so on that. They fall into that like well. It's going have to be a full year gap year or a full year volunteer type of opportunity. Now it could be a couple months and then maybe working a part-time job couple months. Maybe volunteering somewhere. A combination of different things and wondering you touched on the importance of just being able to be Very individualized path for each student I wanted to talk a little bit more about some of the reasons why students might fall into the late bloomer category. We talked a lot about academics. Finding a passion not really turned onto traditional school. What about just the idea that some students aren't developmentally ready to leave home or or start the rigors of a college career at age eighteen. So we've had from my high school. Some students who've actually looked at boarding schools and doing postgraduate year. Where this additional year of high school after graduation before going to college and to be honest can be an expensive proposition for some families. So one of the options we've had students who've stayed home. Stayed stayed living with their parents. Gone to a local college. Not necessarily community. College Auditing Courses Taking a few courses and then applied as a transfer or as a freshman after that and took that extra time to get the independence and the self-motivation ownership that they needed to to go into college where you are much more independent and you need to be responsible. Are there certain types of colleges that are particularly Suitable for late bloomers? You know have to advocate and promote our community colleges of course You can do programs like I mentioned like in one term one year in two years and then go straight into the workforce or you can transfer into a four year college in university. You Know I. It came from a large division one. Pack Twelve Four Year Public Land Grant Research University located in a traditional college town and mostly the population that I was working with was students who were in that traditional linear path of going from high school or high school to community college and transferring to this four year institution but now that I work at a community college. We have a very diverse group of students who come from all walks of life or seventy thousand students and size. The largest post secondary institution in state and our students are Have Speak Forty eight different languages at home. So we have a variety of different programs and options for students and everything and so the services and opportunities that we have are very diverse and plentiful that we have for a student. So really look into your community colleges if you feel as though you're late bloomer and you're not really sure what you WanNa do or and stuff like that now. The thing that I emphasize the students if they are a late bloomer but they're determined they in their parents that they want to go to college that first year after high school graduation maybe look for a school that they have a comfort level at already and that could be bent on the campus allot for maybe sporting events or cultural events and so on or their parents went there or they have a sibling their or friends and so on so I think comfort level is one area too that we can certainly guide students. That are late bloomers. If they again feel that that's a good fit right after high school to help them. In that transitional period tied into both of those. I Work Today State University. That was the flagship State University for the State. It was in. They had a program when I worked there. Run Their continuing studies office. That was really designed for eight bloomers. It was the concept that you could come typically back to college and take thirty credit hours over a two year period which isn't fulltime studies but is enough that you would be a finishing her sophomore year over three years and if you had a three. Oh in that program. You are guaranteed admission to the university and so I think looking sometimes at your local opportunities is a great way to get started. And maybe it's part time. Maybe it's fulltime and sometimes community colleges the best option sometimes at school. You're familiar with but also don't discount a school that you might not be familiar with but might be trying to serve its state. That's close to have some alternate programs. We talked a lot about so far about students. Who who at least have maybe an inkling of of where they see their path. What about for those students that you may senior office? That just do not know at all what they want to do. And maybe aren't necessarily the the biggest fans of school for those students? What are some steps that they can take to figure out where their future lies? That's a good question and we talked a little bit earlier. I think first of all day and their parents new embrace that college is not the the appropriate next step for them right after high school graduation then after that working through their high school counselor working through friends and family and so on just looking at different opportunities that are out there and there's not going to be one distinct path for one student is there is to another I've worked with students that have they've gone on mission trips for a full semester. In it really by Gosh. After four months coming back they they were like a different person they were in a different part of the world but that was they kind of found their passionate have cleared their head in terms of what they might want to do in the future. Many late bloomers that I've worked with and I'm sure others have to they. It's very common that they're going to have at least one if maybe not a couple real strong passions in an area and to cultivate that and look at opportunities beyond graduation for them at least for that first year or two. Samaria to break down your question little bit because they're almost two questions in there. The first one was the what about that students undecided? And I think it's really important to realize that college. Freshmen must pop. Your major in. The country is undecided and most people are going to switch their major a couple of times. So that's not being sure what you want to do is little different than being a bloomer. You did throw in. That part of the aren't sure schools right for them. I think part of what the student needs to look at the type of school in because again out of high schools are very traditional and they studied traditional things and some of the opportunities in college or in trade school or in community. College broaden the process so much in today's Day and age there's so much more hands on learning than there ever has been before and that's trickled down to the high schools. Some colleges do an awesome job of hands on experience where some are very traditional and more for lack of better word Baxter style or discussion style. Only and I think that opportunity to look at those and say wow look at this opportunity. I can do this thing. Hands on can be a great opportunity for some students for some students might not be college right away. It might be going to work. It might be going somewhere else. And maybe they come back to it. Maybe they don't Jake. You mentioned the the hands on. I am sure you guys have seen it to how many how many times that a student says. I really like taking apart know car engines and so on and their parents. You're going to be an engineer. It's like no. They're not going to be an engineer. They WANNA take our cars and they want to put them back together and they wanna be mechanic or something related to that but that traditional sense the parents and sometimes the counselors over like. Oh engineering for you. It's like no you know math is not my forte. I want to be doing more hands on type of experiences. That brings up a good point. What are things that adults across the board whether they're in schools whether their counselors working with families or whether their parents can do to better serve late bloomers?.

"Take advantage of everything that is on that campus and their end result out calm will be successful. Them and that success is truly and honestly defined by the student not by a ranking. One other things I have students look at his kinds of schools. Like right there in the heart of the US. She's in Ohio. If a student I really want a big school we know that you know you can throw a stone and hit a big school in Ohio right but you might say well. That's a kind of school. I don't know if I can get all the way to Nebraska or if I can get California to look at some of those schools but I know I can look at a kind of school. That's that size or a small liberal Arts College. Those kinds of things and so a students are exploring in the search particularly having a mind on students who might not be as well resource to go and fly all these different places to see schools. They can certainly explore with what's online. There's so many videos and social media post and other things about schools but they might start off with a kind of school and the might be the first way to do that. The school is ranked first when it comes to this kind of program. I'm interested in international business. Wait I didn't know the school had a great International Business Program. Let me compare these The flip side of that is sometimes when students say what they're interested in and they'll say I wanna be a psychology major. Well we know under psychology. There are a thousand different things. So what does the number one ranked psych program really mean when there could be neuroscience or developmental science? Or how are those things being broken down? So the first part is maybe allowing students to sort of go about a school. They hadn't thought about and then as they dig deeper what. They may find our questions that they're now asking of schools. They knew a whole lot about that. They didn't know to ask. Do you ever have Especially Earl in to verify you ever worked with students where it's hard to get them or their parents to look past the rankings. In and in those cases what have you done to try to flip the conversation to open up more viewpoints. All the time Their students and families who again are married to the numbers and that particular publication my job and I say this often too. The students I work with is just to broaden the perspective to dig deep and find out why certain school might be a decent match for them. If I am constructing a research lists for them often. Say That my students that You might not have heard of the school but I know based on your factors. I know that it fits one or two or three of those factors and now my job is to tell you about it and your job is to research it. I try hard and to finesse. That particular conversation knowing our families well and knowing kind of the value was and the thoughts behind higher education on the families. You work with is key to be able to have that type of conversation. I also think colleges are so nimble. And they're changing and growing all the time and so. I always want to be careful when a student says. This is the best program for X. Because there could be an opportunity that colleges doing. They've always had a music program but now they're trying to expand that to music industry work and they're using this sort of real great foundation. They have in one area to explore another area now if I went solely by the rankings because of the infancy of that program a student might not actually You know it might not be very high ranked but when you look at the individual at attention a program that's relatively new already accredited but relatively new is going to get. That student is going to really connect with the best of the best When it comes to that I think the other thing is when I'm talking to parents about rankings. Their information is both correct and slightly false at the number. And they've said like this is what the number says And they've taken a lot of information that they have about schools that they've heard of the most and sort of Paid attention to that. The other thing is our students are often looking at schools from an undergraduate perspective. And we know that there's influence of having a large graduate school programs at some of the larger universities. And so I have to say student sometimes if you want to study something like biology certainly if you go to a large university year going to interact with some of the best researchers and professors that there are but you're more someone who likes the hands on approach and so. I would argue that maybe going to a smaller school where that might not be the first thing they're known for but there's a professor who chose to work there because they're really excited about interacting with students so sometimes there's so much more information that we learn when we lead with our heart first and not our head anyone who starts with the rankings is leading with their head but we want to make sure students are making heart an had choices when it comes to college when you have rankings that are looking like at endowment but you know you're doing really amazing things and having students that are thriving but you're endowment is in high then you're lower on the list you know and and it's just not necessarily speaking to what's happening on those campuses is also interesting that colleges oftentimes don't move very far on the list either. It's just hard to kind of put all the weight into the rankings. Just because it's not necessarily two reflection of everything that's happening on all of these great campuses and you know that there's a great fit out there for so many students with your work with students. What are the things that really make a difference? What are the factors that impact their experience? Once they're on campus. Yeah I mean I think for me You know when students are willing to try when they're willing to step outside their comfort zone. Wow you know I always say I can. It's just amazing to kind of see students to be on. Campus and to see students grow Right before your eyes when they take advantage of things that might be a student who came who never thought they'd study abroad. And then they go abroad with their class In a seminar and have an experience like that or they take advantage of an internship and all of a sudden they're turned onto career. They never thought they'd pursue is when they're willing to kind of step outside of those comfort zones that I think you really see them doing incredible things. I always tell students when they're looking at their list in their thinking about schools a school. A list is only as good as you'll go to the most likely school on the list so sometimes students say well. I could get in there anyway. That doesn't make it bad. It just means that you've worked really hard and you can get in there. Why is it because it's something that you could have admission to you? Don't want to go right. So that's one thing the other thing is. We often change our minds. I think students should maybe think about school and terms of this is going to be my major and this is really what I wanna do but sometimes we get there and we say I don't know chemistry's not for me or I think I really WanNa explore that or heard great things about the business program here so you want to pick a school that has multiple majors that you can find yourself satiate with an excited about so once you make those really critical friendships. You know where the dining hall is and where to get the late night pizza. You don't want to transfer you WANNA stay 'cause you have those creature comforts but WANNA make sure. A campus is going to have multiple things that you're interested in because sometimes we fake. Something is what we really want to do. But the more we dig in we might change your minds and I still WanNa be in love with my school. Well that was a great conversation. Thank you all. I think you have done a great service.

"A young person can make more and more in addition to the questions about which college I should attend and where he might be accepted. Students are asking. Can I afford it while? Students in their families have wrestled these issues for years and years and years and years the current skyrocketing college costs as well as fears about out of Control Student. Dead have given the issue of college affordability new urgency today. We are going to talk about paying for college. Financial aid and some tips and advice from some professionals who have spent their careers working on these issues. Moderating our discussion is mary. Steg Meyer from neck ex communication department a former journalist and award-winning reporter who spent a decade covering education and related issues for the Des Moines Register and other newspapers in the Midwest. Mary we are pleased to turn things over to you. Thank you Jane and is good to be with you all and let's get started. This is such an important topic and such A. I mean this is a perfect time of the year to be speaking about these things to Before we jump into talking about the cost of college I wanted to touch on the value of college and so give me your thoughts college degree. Is it worth it? And if yes what? What makes it worth it? I'll start by saying unequivocally yes in my opinion and I think they're certainly an economic piece to that right so we know data show us right. That college graduates make on average more than those who don't have a college degree but also sort of there's non monetary aspect of more civic engagement a better educated populace. I think all around yes but I know we all kind of smiled and said yes. It's worth it but this is a real conversation that families are having so when when Tracy when you talk with students or when when other counselors at your school talk with students and families. Are there still concerns out there about why they're college is still a portable option for everyone? Yes there sure is conversation about Which career path students should try to be? Steered to upon graduation so college is still very much in the forefront of a lot of families conversation however the cost is now a factor especially with The student debt as you mentioned earlier Being a great divider I would say for a lot of families in terms of where they can afford to send their students and for possibly. How long will they be able to send them there if they don't have secure amount of money's Waiting to pay that tuition which most families do not these days. I think one of the thoughts I would add to it. In addition to the financial benefit from attending college the ability to becoming a responsible tax-paying citizen and give back in terms of forming the tax base for future students in the areas where the current students live. There's also tremendous growth in college in terms of critical thinking skills. And it's likely that these students are heading off to college. Now are going to have more jobs in their lifetime than I can count. They're going to be changes. Due to artificial intelligence. They'll be shifts in job. Markets and the ability to think critically and synthesize information and transition may be from an intended career field into something else really requires those strong critical thinking skills that you enhance while you're a college student in correct and I also Wanna add that just the the social skills that Our young adults learn while being in college and Learning how to be independent and making Independent decisions for themselves and learning how to organize and advocate so all those things are a great Byproduct of attending college. I think one other point there is. It's we say college in value and talk about it. It's not always just a four year degree. There's lots of research that show that. Any attendance post-secondary education whether it's maybe just a year and you end up not completing. I mean certainly. We hope that students complete but if we if they don't there is benefit to having gone whether it's a two year school for your school trade school so I just want to make that point that we're talking. Broadly about post-secondary education and not just that you know four year degree and I think this is probably a whole `nother topic but once families Are Invested in this idea that colleges were they or postsecondary credential of some kind. That's a goal for for their child for their family. What needs to happen next when we talk about college costs? What sort of conversations should families be having as they plan for College? and wind should those conversations start as early as possible for the General Answer. I I would agree with Tracy I think. To some extent it depends on the student and the family early enough. That students can be part of it but not so soon as to raise their already heightened anxiety and I would also add that We have to remember that our high school students are introduced to the college admissions process or just college culture as soon as they hit ninth grade year there in that high school with seniors. There's a lot of activities that happened school wide That they observe that they see the other students participating in a while. They may not necessarily have that direct access or conversation with Ron Sore. Financial aid personnel. Come to the school to help out. They are embedded in that culture so perhaps for parents freshman year needs to be the year when maybe parents start thinking about a little bit more to Echo. What Jane said not too soon but the students are already being exposed to wait. 'til junior year really is a little too late to start having those conversations at least for the parents and and what are some of the things what are some of the basics that families should know about as they go into that process. Say they're talking with the freshmen in highschool or even family conversations. What do they need to know about? The terms of the FASSA is a is a huge Ah termendous thrown around the process. Can you explain a little bit about what that is? And maybe some of the other terminology. They may run into yeah. I think you know financially can be quite complex. And the reason is is that there are different types of financial aid but they also come from different sources so those are sort of two ways you need to think about it so if we break it down. Broadly the types of financial aid. They come in the form of grants or scholarships. So money that you don't have to pay back loans money of course that you need you know borrow and we'll have to have an obligation to repay once you leave school and then there's also some different programs like a work study program where you you know work to earn funds to toward your college education but those three different types of financial aid can come from the federal government from the states from the institutions themselves and also from private or or locals donors so understanding. I think that there are sort of free money money that you borrow and then other sort of ways to kind of work through I think are are kind of the building blocks there and then really working to educate yourself or or find someone counselor who can help you understand what might be available from a particular institution what kind of institutional aid or scholarship programs. They have and what's available from your local community and you mentioned the FAFSA. I'm happy to go into that too so that You know that sort of way that you kick off the financial aid process and we encourage every student family to fill out the FAFSA their free application for Federal Student Aid One thing that we hear a lot is that folks won't fill it out because they feel like they won't be eligible for financial aid which does at this point at the federal level. Go to Very needy families however you do have to fill out the FAFSA to even get a student loan and many institutions also use information from the fast the to award their own institutional scholarships or loans. So it's a really important part of the process and becomes available in October one and we are very encouraging of US students of him way spilling it out as soon as possible for our counselors on the on the panel. Can you talk a little bit about? Maybe some of the questions or some of the issues that are common for families to run into things that anyone listening here couldn't Perhaps use your tips to avoid doing themselves. With regard to the fast one of the suggestions I would have four families. There is a FAFSA calculator if after estimator on the website and I would encourage families parents to fill that out early just to get an idea of what they may qualify for their student in terms of need based aid. You could even do that in middle school if you wanted to start to think about what ability you might have to save some money. If you're fortunate enough to be able to do that as your child traveled grows but doing that estimator early on gives you a clear number of what you would qualify for and then parents can make other decisions and do other research about other sources of of loans and grants based on that number. Take some of the surprise out of it and for those families that may need assistance in terms of understanding the fast or help filling it out. they should always turn to their school counseling offices if there is not a college counselor there in the office There are school counselors. That should be able to help and I would say. The majority of schools have some kind of financial aid night. A lot of times they partner with the local colleges from someone from that financial aid office will come to the school to give a presentation and possibly even be able to help them Walk through the the formal walked to the former them so now that we've talked a little bit about the process of filing for for financial aid Wanted to make sure we touch on the of college itself and Jane. You talked about this about some students and the with with perhaps a dream school that that really is a dream for them. What things do families need to look at when they're looking at college? Can you talk a little bit about the difference between sticker price and actual prize? Actually it's important to talk about the difference between the sticker price in the actual price or a couple of layers to that. And I'm actually going to ask Megan to cover part of that because you're are financially guru in the room and I think that would be helpful to families. Yes sure so. The the sticker price is sort of the big number that you see which represents A schools cost of attendance which is basically just pulling together. you know not just tuition and fees room board other things that you may have to pay for sort of the whole package. So that's the big number that you see but what we really want. Students and families to focus on is the net price. So what you'll basically have to pay out of pocket and the the most General Way. I can say that schools calculate that as they take that big sticker price number and then they subtract any grants and scholarships that you might get not might be grants from the federal government. It might be scholarships from the institution and so you mentioned tuition discounting That often comes in the forms of usually annual scholarship. Sometimes in in very large a nice amount so a school. Add Up that money that you don't have to pay back and then the number that you see this leftover is what you'll have to finance either out of pocket or through borrowing of student loans and even parent loans that would be.
