This guide is for parents whose students are beginning the college search process or who are applying to colleges and universities. It is also for parents whose students are in their first year of college as well as those who have completed it. Drawing on three decades of experience teaching and advising college students as well as on extensive senior leadership expertise at elite research universities and small colleges, an Academic Dean provides parents with an unusually candid and realistic examination of the four dominant myths about college and the first-year experience that negatively affect students academically, personally, and socially. With wisdom and compassion, this guide provides parents with straightforward and distilled analyses of these four pivotal myths, which disproportionately affect students' expectations of their first year in college: the myth of an ideal or perfect school; the myth that college is about abundance of choice; the myth that first-year students adjust to college through First-Year Experience Programs; and the myth that college is freedom. Viola Sebastian-Jones expertly addresses why higher education, as an industry, perpetuates these myths and provides parents (and students) with seven clear solutions for managing these myths during campus visits, in the transition to college, during the enrollment and orientation processes, and throughout the first-year experience. In addition to helping parents identify and understand these pivotal myths and their disadvantageous consequences, this guide gives parents important strategies for getting the information they need from institutions about the first-year experience on their campuses. Through her matter-of-fact approach to higher education, Viola Sebastian-Jones helps parents and students create the educational experience they deserve.
