Athena Advises

It’s somebody else’s turn to give advice today! I hope you took notes! I love to let other students tell you about their experiences as successful college applicants.

And if you’re wondering why this student’s advice is relevant in the Era of the iPhone–allow me to mention that you really don’t want to find yourself throwing your smartphone across the room one early morning.

Are you still yearning for the happy day when it’s your turn to pack for the adventure of college? Stay tuned! You’ll get there! The Athena Mentor newsletter is coming your way with tips and encouragement.

Wishing you every success,
