College Spotlight: The College of Wooster
Looking for a unique one-on-one learning experience? The College of Wooster may be for you. Located in Wooster, Ohio (an hour south of Cleveland and ninety minutes northeast of Columbus) this Division III school has a liberal arts tradition that dates from its founding in 1866. All seniors participate in an independent study project of their choosing, culminating with the Wooster tradition of an I.S. Parade where all Seniors march and turn in their papers followed by a campus celebration. A private school set on a beautiful campus in a small town (Wooster’s population is 26,000), Wooster is a great pick for the student who really knows themselves and is interested in becoming involved with their school community.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!
While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.

"Your help with my college and law school applications was fantastic. Picking which schools to apply to, which activities to emphasize in my applications, and how to present myself in my personal statements were all easier because of you. I cannot thank you enough for your warm encouragement and always knowledgeable advice. "Ivana D., Class of 2007,
