In this episode of The College Checklist Podcast, I interview college success coach Ashley Hill about how to succeed in college and Ashley shares the importance of having a college success plan from a very early age.
Ashley stresses that this plan should reach beyond simply getting into college. It should help set our students up for success in college and beyond. She describes the importance of having a college success team and how students need to take ownership for their college admissions process and career goals.
Ashley provides lots of great ideas to help the college-bound family – even if you’re a little late to the college planning party.
