Hello!

It’s here! This week’s newsletter features the launch of our second virtual campus visit to Oakland University!

But first, we want you to know that we are thinking of you and your families. We hope that you and your families are continuing to stay safe and healthy. We know that the pandemic and changes in school learning have been incredibly challenging for many students. Please know that we are here for you and want to help you succeed both now and in the future. That's why we're introducing an ongoing office hours series starting this week. We hope you'll join us!

Stuck on something with school? Not sure what you should be doing to prepare for post-secondary education? Just want to chat?


As always, please reach out with any questions/concerns!
