Fresh off a three-continent, two-galaxy whirlwind tour of cyberspace, The College Whisperer re-enters the stratosphere, ready to make his only Long Island appearance (so far) on Monday, September 20, 2010, from 7 PM to 8:30 PM.

The College Whisperer brings his know-how and savvy (sorry, no entourage) to what some consider to be the center of the universe (or so local residents would have you believe ;-), West Hempstead, New York, offering a FREE College Planning Workshop for parents of college-bound high school students.

Learn about the admissions process and applying to college. Get the low down on what those college essays ("personal statements," to those familiar with the lingo) are really all about. Develop a college timeline and admissions strategy. And let's not forget about paying for college. The College Whisperer has some insight on that, as well.

A lively, interactive discussion will ensue, and questions will be entertained (no song and dance, however).

The College Planning Workshop (did I mention that it's FREE?) will be held at the West Hempstead Public Library, 500 Hempstead Avenue, West Hempstead, NY, and is open to all.

Registration, which is ongoing, is required. Call the West Hempstead Public Library at 516-481-6591.

Can't make it to the FREE College Planning Workshop on September 20th? Have a group of 10 or more and a place to assemble (local library, community center, house of worship, Elks Club, Moose Lodge)? The College Whisperer can bring his words of collegiate wisdom to you. For more information on hosting a FREE College Planning Workshop in your community, call College Connection at 516-345-8766.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to meet The College Whisperer. [Okay. Okay. I'll sign your autograph book. Goodness, you are a persistent little fella, aren't you...]
