Wicomico Public Library College Week Offers Help

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO CO, Md. - From figuring out which of the more than 4,000 US college is best for your family, to pinching pennies in order to pay the thousands of dollars in tuition, housing, and don't forget application fees, the whole process can be kind of overwhelming.

That's where the Wicomico County Public Library comes in.  They're hosting a College Week -- full of tips and information for parents.
Experts say the earlier the better when it comes to the college application process, and one of the most important steps that's often overlooked is just visiting a campus.

"Most people think that because they visit the college online [that] it's for them, but it's completely different when you actually visit the school and meet some of the sutdents and meet the faculty and staff," said Whitney Wright, volunteer coordinator with the Wicomico Public Library.

Linda Jagusiak, Office Manager and College and Career Advisor with Delmarva Education Foundation, says the key to making this taxing time go a little more smoothly is to

"Follow directions and meet the deadlines because if you don't meet the deadlines, you're not in the running, and if you don't follow the directions, they may not look at your application at all."
     Jagusiak also recommends families start the process no later than junior year.
