Frances E.

Why should you attend?

“Frances Jensen, a neuroscientist and single mother of two boys… delved into the emerging science of the adolescent brain [and] came out with provocative new insights for parents, educators, public policymakers and teens themselves.”—The Washington Post

“In his thoughtful book, Dr. Sawyer addresses one of the most important issues in higher education today, keeping students in college and graduating them on time. College in Four Years is a must read for students preparing for college as well as those currently in college. It also gives parents/guardians/educators and other stakeholders a better understanding of how to help students make the most of their educational experience.”—Dr. Roderick Page, United States Secretary of Education (2001-2005)
