This site is to help college bound students, parents, and youth workers stay up to date on the latest research and trends in regards to college transition. Your comments are greatly appreciated.

Making the Most of College

I want to draw your attention to a very good series of articles being published by Comment, a publication of the Work Research Foundation based in Canada. Comment is best known for publishing excellent articles helping people integrate faith into all of life. This particular series is focusing on college students, but provides much wisdom that can be applied to every stage of life.

In the introduction to this series, editor and good friend Dr. Gideon Strauss writes:

Comment is committed to cultivating the next generation of cultural leaders. It is, indeed, in the college years that most people make the decisions that will guide them as they provide leadership throughout their adult years.”

The online articles will be compiled and printed in a hardcopy form and available for purchase in the fall. For more information on Comment, the Work Research Foundation, or on how to obtain a copy (a great gift for college bound high school students and/or college freshman!), click here.
