Where You Go....Lessons from Frank Bruni
by Lauren Gersick
Associate Director of College Counseling
Often we talk about the "noise"--the complicated, conflicting and sometimes warped conversations about the college admission process in the United States.
Frank Bruni, NY Times columnist, has spent the last couple of years distilling the messages floating out there and helping reframe the lens so often trained on selective college admission. In his new book, Where You Go Is Not Who You'll Be, Bruni describes with amazing clarity the vulnerabilities revealed by the college process and the fixed nature of the narratives parents and students perpetuate. Bruni offers some counter-messages that can help offset the anxiety. You may read a short excerpt from the book from the NY Times HERE
If a medium-length read isn't on the docket right now Katie Couric interviewed the author and that conversation, found HERE, may be equally revealing and a bit speedier.
Happy reading (or watching)!
