Library Resources for College presented by Library Staff


What do parents and students need to know about choosing a college? From sports teams, class sizes, residential experiences, public or private, East or West coast and who pays the bill. These and other questions and topics will be addressed at four Need to Know Lectures being presented. The first three lectures will be led by Dr. Don Chu, Ph.D., former professor, department head and most recently a college dean. Don, the father of five, will share his knowledge of higher education and provide the introduction parents and students need to make informed decisions about college. Carlsbad City Library staff will lead a final discussion on the library resources available to prospective college students.
