Could taking a break from formal education help more students find success in college?
Explore that question and share your own insights during a March 29 #NACACreads discussion of Gap to Great.
The discussion will kick off on Twitter at 9 p.m. (ET).
“Gap year programs aren’t trying to replace college,” writes author Andrea Wien, who will participate in the chat. “If anything, they’re a preparation for it.”
Her book is aimed at parents, but chock-full of pertinent information for counselors and admission officers. In Gap to Great, Wien shares the latest research on student outcomes, offers gap year planning tips, and explores how colleges view this growing trend.
