“Countdown to College” Offers College Planning Advice

Mary Sommers
Financial Aid director, 308.865.8520

A live, one-hour, call-in television show to air on Nebraska ETV Network called “Countdown to College” allows parents and students to phone in questions to help with planning for college and making the transition from high school to college. Experts in the areas of admissions, financial aid and student orientation will help answer the questions.

The show, to air on Wednesday, December 11 at 7:30 p.m., will include University of Nebraska at Kearney’s director of financial aid, Mary Sommers, on the panel of experts. Questions can also be emailed in advance or during the program to countdown@educationquest.org.

“This type of show is excellent for anyone doing college planning of any kind, whether it’s academic or financial planning. Parents are normally the ones who pay more attention to the financial issues, but juniors and seniors in high school will benefit from the show as well,” Sommers said.
