Today’s question comes from the Los Angeles Times:

Graduation season is now is session. But with one graduating class 2012, comes two different reports on  job prospects. On the heels of a big graduation weekend for many college graduates, the Associated Press released a report Sunday announcing the triumphant return of employment for outgoing seniors.

However, only a couple weeks before had that same AP published an article about about the bleakness of the graduating class’s job prospects.

So what’s the deal? What has your experience been like trying to get a job? Or, what do you think is actually happening out there?

Today’s question:

College campuses are known for being fun, lively, and full of young and exciting people. But college campuses aren’t always perfect. If you read the news, it’s not uncommon for violent crimes to occur on or close to a college campus.

What do students need to know about campus safety before they head off to college?

Today’s question::

While students and admissions folks go crazy for new applicants, a startling 1 in 3 students who enroll in either a four-year or two-year college will probably transfer at some point*!

Why do you think that so many college students transfer? What’s behind all the movement?

 

*A statistic in a report issued by the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
