Back-to-School Support on Twitter

Dawn Papandrea | May 19, 2010

Jumping back into school after you’ve been in the working world (or possibly the unemployment lines) can be a scary yet exciting prospect. So many questions: Can I handle it? How do I apply? What if I don’t remember how to be a student? Is online learning a good move for me?

Join  The CollegeBound Network’s #CollegeBound chat on Twitter and join the back to school conversation with other adults thinking of heading back to school and college-bound students of all ages, along with college admission reps, career experts, and current college students.

If there’s anything Twitter is good for, it’s to connect with others to Tweet out the stress, the questions, the concerns, and then get the answers you need from those in the know! Right?

So mark your calendars for The CollegeBound Network’s #CollegeBound chat, beginning Monday, May 24th at 4:00 p.m. EST. For a solid hour, you can hop onto Twitter, and use and follow the #CollegeBound hashtag.

Our first #CollegeBound chat topic is “Preparing for College,” which will give you a sneak peek at researching schools, figuring out what path to follow, and getting your all your initial questions answered. And we won’t leave you hanging; each week will feature a new #CollegeBound chat that features a different college topic… Follow @CollegeBoundNet and @CollegeSurfing, and tune in on Twitter each Monday at 4 p.m. EST.

If you’ve got a college topic that you’d like to learn more about, tweet us @CollegeBoundNet and let us know what’s on your mind. And to unofficially RSVP to #CollegeBound, put your Twitter handle in the Comments below. Here’s a customized TweetGrid for you to use to make it even more simple!

WIN! Send this Tweet prior to the event, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for one of two $50 Amazon gift certificates:
