Another pivotal August observance is Get Ready For College Month.  It is the time to prepare your 18 year old for higher education.  Making the transition from high school to college can be the biggest change in a young adult life.  It is exciting and scary at the same time.  College is a big step as the students no longer have a parent nearby to wake them up and keep them fed.  Your child will receive a crash course in time and money management techniques.  Here are the most popular names of the students entering college and university in the fall of 2015.
