Dedicated to a rewarding and successful college search

HECA Conference in Vancouver, BC

The Higher Education Counselors Association (HECA) Conference in Vancouver, BC, was full of interesting programs, from presentations by the president of Quest University to sessions on current admissions topics. The conference was held on the campus of the University of British Columbia, where there was substantial campus-wide construction in progress. There were admissions representatives from colleges throughout the US and Canada, as well as representatives from international degree and summer programs. Dr. Laura Kastner spoke to our group on the important topic of family relationships and challenges during the college admissions process. She provided a number of invaluable suggestions for dealing with this often stressful time, and more recommendations can be found in her book The Launching Years: Strategies for Parenting from Senior Year to College Life.
