Higher Learning And The Best Bang For Your Buck

By in large, most parents want their children to attend a four year college.  However, more often than not, affordability becomes a concern.  In fact, for many families, it is a decision they agonize over.  Clearly, parents want what is best for their children, but they also do not want to saddle their children with tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of debt after graduation.  Incredibly, many top colleges also come with an impressive tuition—something most working families are not impressed with.  Again, this expense is a major concern for families across the country, and for this reason, parents will often guide their children toward state universities.  Interestingly enough, this week I saw a link online for Kiplinger’s “Best Value in Public Colleges.” 

 

Here, they list the top 100 best value colleges in the country. New York State has nine colleges on the list, including an outstanding university right here on Long Island: SUNY Stony Brook University which ranked No. 29 on their list. If you plan on sending your child to college, you may want to access the link. Remember Island Trees also has more college information on their College Planning website www.islandtrees.org/iths/college/college.htm. For additional information, please call the high school guidance office.

Motivate Teens To Read

 

Communities value their libraries, and at the Levittown Library, the library staff, in turn, truly appreciates their patrons. Employees at the Levittown Public Library, with a talent for knitting, demonstrate their commitment to the community’s teens by making “amigurumi”—small knitted or crocheted stuffed toys—for use in the reading program. 

YES celebrates “A Taste of the Town”
