Jon Gould: "How to Succeed in College (While Really Trying): A Professor's Inside Advice"
Wednesday, April 24, at 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Room C234/Northfield Campus
Senior parents and students welcome!
New Trier alum and award-winning American University law professor and author Jon Gould shares practical tips, strategies, and tools for incoming college freshmen from the moment they arrive on campus. Many students will have the opportunity to listen to Jon's tips during Senior Institute Day, so this is parents' opportunity to hear and discuss the same message. Seniors who will miss Jon's talk on Institute Day are welcome to attend. Extensive Q&A.
