Podcast: College Conversations

How do you decide which college or post-secondary option is best for you? Join Project Success facilitator Kyle as he interviews MPS students and experts on important post-secondary related topics, all to help inform your decision-making process.

Episode 1: Decision Making (9/28) Kyle connects with Cheryl (admissions coordinator at MCTC), Lana (Patrick Henry 10th grader) and Jordan (South Alumni now studying at the U of M) on their perspective of which factors are the most important when choosing a college.

Episode 2: First-Generation Scholars (10/5) Kyle connects with Kenzie (UMNTC Coordinator of Multicultural Outreach & Community Partnerships, Undergraduate Office of Admissions), Jeremiah (GEAR UP Program Manager), and Hana (Project Success Facilitator) on what it means to be the first to attend college. What are the challenges of being the first? How can you celebrate being the first?

Episode 3: Self-Advocacy (10/19) Kyle connects with Josh (admissions officer at Fond du Lac Tribal & Community College), Leo (12th grade student at Roosevelt High School), and Alwyn (MPS North High School Alumni) on Self-Advocacy. How can you be your own advocate both in college and during the college process? Why should you ask for what you need and what does self-efficacy have to do with it?

Episode 4: Community & Campus Support (10/26) Kyle connects with Derek (Manager of Counseling Services, Office of College and Career Readiness at MPS), Shonna (Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Augsburg), and Chelsea (10th grader, and PS alumni) about what do you need to feel supported on a college campus. How do you ask for support? Who can you go to? What resources are there and how can your community support you?

Episode 5: Financial Aid (11/2) In our final fall episode, Kyle connects with Sam (Financial Aid Counselor at the Dougherty Family College, St. Thomas), Keeley (Senior Financial Aid Counselor at St. Catherine University), and Zoe (10th grader at Southwest) about the cost of college. How can you pay for college? Is the debt even worth it? Who can support you?
