Campus Bound is excited to present a series of webinars dedicated to helping families better understand and navigate the college search, application and financial process.
How often have you wanted to attend to a presentation? Indeed, you intended to go, but then, at the last minute, couldn’t make it. Or, you wanted to go but had a conflict with kids’ sports or other commitments. Adding salt to the wound, you hear from friends how great it was. And even though they offer to share their notes with you, it isn’t the same as hearing it firsthand. How nice that webinars solve that problem… a presentation that can be viewed from your home, your office, virtually anywhere at all. You’ll be able to ask questions and hear other questions and, it’s recorded so you can view it multiple times.
Webinars are a great way for us to share our knowledge and experience with you, so don’t delay. Sign up today! You don’t need to be a Campus Bound client to register. Anyone can join in! And, if you aren’t available at the exact time of the webinar, we will send you a recording of it.
