The inaugural chat included a panel of three parents (Eileen Paulin @EileenPaulin; Tom Field; and Robert Geller, @rgeller), spanning both coasts, who had just completed the college admissions application process with their respective teens. For them, it was time to celebrate! No more campus visits! No more application deadlines! No more indecision! Their insights about teens, colleges and keeping one's sanity were rich with humor and reflection. Since that first chat, guests have ranged from working moms and dads to admissions counselors to test prep experts to social media gurus to authors.
So, we meet again tonight at 9PM ET on Twitter. Our topic is College Favorites. You're invited to share your favorite places, classes, professors, movies, etc. Anyone can pop in and share what they like/liked about their college experience.
It's been great fun to host #CampusChat and I'm looking forward to Year 2!
