AMDG. In this replay of a conversation from April 2021, Bonnie and her sister Hope visit with Dr. Don Prudlo to discuss the specifics of college visits and college transition. We talk about how to look under a college’s hood, so to speak, beyond what admissions counselors pitch, as well as a few things to consider when discerning what size and type of school is best for individual students. Dr. Prudlo emphasizes Kolbe’s college preparatory curriculum and also reminds students not to be so rigorous that they forget to be human.
The conversation references ep 9 with Don's daughter Monnica and ep 39 Reclaiming the Territory, the precursor to this episode when it originally aired. In the interim, the Kolbecast has covered a lot more ground relating to “Life after Kolbe,” with episodes including
- 59 The Secret Whiteboard
- 84 The Essence of Catholic Education with Patrick Reilly of the Cardinal Newman Society
- 85 Vibrant Campus Ministries
- 109 A Lifetime Venture
- 127 Forging a Path
