Destination College Workshop Offers College Selection, Admission Tips to Parents

Oct. 22, 2010 – With high school graduation nearing, finding the right college for students can be overwhelming. As a result, just thinking about the college admissions process and not knowing where to start, unfortunately, is something many high school students prolong.

Thus, parents often take the reins and decide that they will take charge inadvertently, adding to the students’ stress.

To help avoid this from happening, Collin College’s Destination College program invites students and parents to the “How to Not Be a Helicopter Parent – Letting Your Teen Take Responsibility for the College Process" workshop from 6:30-8 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 4 at the Central Park Campus Conference Center, 2200 W. University Drive, in McKinney.

In this workshop, parents will learn tips and tricks on how to guide students through the college selection and admission process.

Destination College is a Collin College initiative that helps high school students and their parents to get ready for college, no matter which institution they choose.

This event is the fourth of a series of workshops scheduled to help high school students prepare for college. While there is no fee to attend, registration is required.  Please register online by going to and clicking on the "Register" button to choose your selected workshop, or call 972.377.1772.  Seating is limited.
