THE COLLEGE CLUB

Williams Educational Consultants is excited to announce the most important club of your student’s high school career – The College Club.

This club is for students who are motivated, excited and eager to begin their college admissions process. Wendy Williams, Educational Consultant, will be teaching students what that they need to know about college admissions, application secrets and more. This club begins in March and is a 10-week commitment.

A small group of students will gather every Thursday to discuss hot topics in college admissions and prepare their college list. Wendy Williams hopes to bring in great speakers like successful graduates or college admissions representatives. Also, students will have access to the Myers Briggs – College Profile and Strong Interest Inventory – College Profile. These assessments will help your student learn more about his or her strengths, interests, talents as well as personality traits and possible college majors.

Students must apply to become a member and space is limited. For more information, please contact Wendy@williamseducational.com.

Why is a college degree important?

A college degree opens the door to a land of opportunities. It acts like a “you pass go” card in the work force and rightfully so after dedicating four or more years to studying and hard work. Obtaining a college degree shows employers certain characteristics and skills such as determination, dependability, reliability, the attitude to succeed and shows you are comfortable with speaking, writing, reading and working with others.

Sure a college degree can equip you with the necessary tools for you to use in a specific field but without the degree you most likely would never be considered for a job position to begin with. And a college degree opens the door in more ways than one. Have you ever thought of the friends you would make and the life long connection you have would with them? They know first hand what you’re made of and may be able to lend a hand in getting a job.

Having a college degree allows you to not just settle but go after that dream job you have always wanted along with making more than minimum wage. Having a college degree allows you to plan for your future in ways such as having benefits and a retirement plan.

A college education helps you to find direction and follow the path to a successful future. It does more than educate you for a job, it excludes you from not be considered for one.
