If you are the parent of a high school student who is considering attending college, the College Guidance Network is offering a webinar at 7:30 P.M. on Thursday, February 2, focusing on how parents and students can make sense of college costs. Some of the topics discussed will be tools and resources to help understand college options, how to see beyond the sticker price of a college to gain a better understanding of the actual cost, and how to be financially realistic but also aspirational in a college search. To register for the webinar, visit bit.ly/collegecostswebinar.

The University of Findlay is offering two experiences which could help students make more informed decisions about a career in pharmacy. First, students could attend the one-day Pharmacy VIP day on March 24 to learn about UF's pharmacy program, tour the facilities, meet the faculty, etc. Students interested in attending this event should e-mail bbratt@vbschools.net to take the first step toward attending. Second, students could attend the three-day Pharmacy Summer Camp from June 21-23 or June 26-28.

This opportunity is only available to current sophomores and juniors, and there is a limit of 50 students for each camp. Interested students can sign up now to save $50 and only pay $350 for the camp (usually $400).
