Free College Knowledge Workshop

  • University of Idaho College of Law (map)

Palouse Pathways is hosting an event for parents and others in community who want to help students thinking about college. We’re calling it the College Knowledge Workshop. It will take place on October 6 from 9:30 – 2 pm at the University of Idaho School of Law.

We’re bringing in a nationally recognized speaker, Arun Ponussamy, Chief Academic Officer of the International College Advising Firm Collegewise.

Arun is preparing a workshop designed especially for Palouse Pathways. Topics will include Helping Students Consider Alternatives and Build a Smart College List; Guiding Students through the Mechanics of the Admissions Process; and The Power of You: What Admissions Officers Look for in Applications.

The morning presentations are geared for adults only, the lunch talk will be great and inspiring for parents and kids (and we are considering some alternative programming teens can do during the workshop).

The event is free and lunch will be provided (donations to defray our costs are welcome).

We are inviting people with children nearing college age and people who would like to serve as community resources and mentors for high school students. Professionals currently working with high schoolers would also benefit.

If you would be interested in attending or knowing more, please let us know by email at or by calling or texting 208 301-5099. If you know of others who would like to join us, please feel free to forward this email and have them respond to use directly.

Later Event: October 17
