Get Ready for College!


Preparing for college can be an entire family affair, not to mention the teachers and counselors who all pull together to help a young person get ready to succeed in higher education. This time on KTD we’re talking about what it takes to get to university – and once accepted – how to do one’s best during those college years. For this conversation we check in with advisors from two of Alaska’s higher learning institutions: University of Alaska, Anchorage and Alaska Pacific University.

PLUS, we’ll hear about how one Native corp helped its students prepare for and succeed in college through peer-to-peer mentorship; and how a university in Alaska is working to move its students through faster – and why.
