On Saturday, June 2, HPC will host a seminar by the Center for Parent/Youth Understanding on making the college transition. The event, which is just as much a community service event as a ministry to our college-bound students and their parents, will aim to prepare students and their families for the Christian's college experience.
The College Transition Initiative (CTI) aims to achieve the following goals:
To encourage students and parents to think more deeply about this transition by asking the most important questions before they get there
To paint a realistic picture of college life
To cast a vision for how students can make the most of the college years
To help you make the most of college by helping you think about college in new ways
Many students think a seminar like this will simply lecture them on why they shouldn’t party, get drunk or have sex at college. While the seminar does cover these issues, the main point is not what students shouldn’t do, but what they should do to make the most of their college experience. One youth worker provided this feedback: “At the college transition seminar Derek presented the college experience as a transformational opportunity. He challenged students and parents to live thoughtfully, intentionally and engage the culture.”
