Welcome to My New Blog

Welcome to My New Blog! – October 22, 2012

After being in Ph.D. program nearly 7 years, I got burned out physically, emotionally, and intellectually. And I have just gone through college application process for my family member. Combined with these two personal experiences and talking to current and perspective students and their parents, I have learned that many assumptions I made about higher education were untrue or intriguing to me, to say the least.

I have decided to set up a blog to start a dialog with you about higher education. My hope is that this blog will be inclusive. You may be high school students thinking about college. Or you might be parents who don’t know where to start about college planning for their children.  You may be state college policy makers deciding higher education admission policy. Or you work for a non-profit organization helping children to go to college. Most importantly, anyone who is interested in this topic is welcome to join my blog.

I am going to write about issues, news, and concerns related to higher education. For example, I will talk about cost of going to college, how to find the right college for you or your children, how to plan and prepare for college, what you should know before investing for college, and anything in between. I will periodically write a new post – probably once or few times a week.

Please feel free to provide me with feedback. I want to hear from you!
