Sewa International – Atlanta’s first workshop on “College Readiness”

April 2016
Sewa International – Atlanta’s first workshop on “College Readiness”

 

Sewa International USA conducted its first family workshop on college readiness for current high school students and their parents on March 5, 2016 at Radha Madhav Society, Duluth, GA. This free event was part of a series of workshops planned under the family services project of Sewa International in Atlanta and other cities in the US.

College readiness is the set of knowledge and skills that shape college success. The four essential types of skills are content knowledge and basic skills; core academic skills; noncognitive or behavioral skills; and “college knowledge,” the ability to effectively search for and apply to college.

Going from high school to college is the first major transition in a student's life. While books, websites, and counsellors are the resources that can help with preparation, current college students can also be a great source for information. A panel discussion on the topic of preparation for college gave students and parents personalized guidance based on their needs and situations, directly from current college students who have managed the transition. Panelists Urvashi Pandya (UGA senior), Adithi Srinivasiah (Emory undergrad), Manan Gandhi (Georgia Tech undergrad), and Vidushi Gupta (Northview High School senior) shared their experiences on topics such as application process, building the right resume, selecting a college, adjusting to life in college, transitions through the change, etc. Kripa Chandran, a 3rd year student at Georgia Tech, moderated the panel. The interactive workshop was attended by about 40 students and parents, and it provided them an opportunity to ask questions they always wanted to ask about getting better prepared for college.

Sewa International is a Hindu faith-based nonprofit charity.
