    Join us as College Inside Track presents "Insider Tips to Navigate the College Process and Save Lots of Money" on 
    Tuesday, October 1, 7:00 pm in the Mounds View High School Auditorium.

    Families often know more about the next appliance they are going to buy than the college education they are going to purchase, leading many to make avoidable mistakes that cost them thousands and hinder their ability to find the best fit for their child.

    Come learn from national expert, Cozy Wittman, the insider tips that will greatly enhance your understanding of the college process, reduce anxiety, and position your child for success.

    Class will cover how to avoid mistakes many families make when trying to identify colleges that are truly the right fit, a behind-the-scenes view of how financial aid really works, actionable strategies to save thousands of dollars, and tips for working with your teenager on a stressful and emotional process.  An absolute must-see for parents with students in grades 10-12.

    Cozy Wittman leads the education team at College Inside Track, an organization that educates and helps families navigate the college process. She is a mom of 5 kids with very different goals for college, so she is no stranger to the college search challenge. Cozy is regularly invited to speak at schools and conferences around the country and is passionate about dispelling myths that cost families money.
