Kaye HeadshotWhat People Are Saying

What People Are Saying About Survival In College 

"McGarry offered insightful tips on coping with the changing dymanics within families and the emerging issues of student independence.  Mrs. McGarry skillfully addressed concerns in the areas of effective communication, finances, academic expectations and values clarification."

"I highly recommend Mrs. McGarry as a speaker to parents and college-bound students.  She is humorous, engaging, and most importantly, informative.  She is sure to enhance any home-school outreach efforts."

- Robbin M. Tatum, Counceling Coordinator Cumberland County School, Fayetteville North Carolina.

"Parents and students alike truly appreciated the information shared by Kaye McGarry in her College Survival seminar.  Ms. McGarry is in touch, interesting, and practical.  All of the parents who attended our seminar at West Carteret High School came away with positive comments and a deeper insight into what today's college freshman face on campus.  Many of them indicated that they felt better equipped now to send their students out in to the world."

"I highly recommend this seminar for parents of college-bound juniors and seniors.  Even I, as a guidance counselor, and mother of two (one of whom has already been through college) gained insight and some really good practical ideas."

- Jean Stephenson, Counselor, West Carteret High School, Morehead City North Carolina.

Enjoyed hearing stories about other freshmen who have made mistakes in the past.  Knowing not to use success or failures of the first semester as indicators of child's 4-year experience."

"Your talk was very informative.  I think it will be a good starting point in helping my high school junior prepare for college during his senior year."

"Since I already have 2 college graduates, I really did not expect to learn anything new, but I really enjoyed the presentation and refreshed my memory about having a college freshmen!  Thanks."

- Various comments from a seminar at Charles E. Jordan High School.
