Imagine America Foundation Releases Resource Guide for Career College Students

Washington, D.C. (March 20, 2008) – The transition from high school to college can be difficult, and college students could use a friend to guide them. To help students make the shift and meet their academic goals, the Imagine America Foundation has released the 2008 Imagine America Student's Guide.

The 2008 Imagine America Student's Guide offers students helpful study tips, advice for responsible credit card management, a look at the importance of externships, and information on different kinds of financial aid. The guide also features insider articles on student services and the importance of technology in the classroom. Other articles highlight things every high school graduate should know.

The Foundation's resource guide for college students has been updated and amended for 2008. This guide is aimed at both students entering college and those who are already in college.

A new section – added for the 2008 edition – focuses on military service members. Articles include helpful information about how service in the military can lead to success in college. Financial assistance for service members is also addressed in this section.

"This year's guidebook gives students information about career colleges, financial aid and so much more," said Robert L. Martin, President of the Imagine America Foundation. "With the added section for military service personnel, we hope that all students will find what they need to help make the right career college choice."

The 2008 Imagine America Student's Guide is now available. To request your free copy, please contact Danica Benson at danicab@imagine-america.org or at 202-336-6724.
