From college back to high school for some recent grads. This time from another perspective.

Recent college grads being deployed as high school advisers

Two words likely to strike fear into the hearts of any high school student eyeing college or trade school. But figuring out how to pay is only one hurdle among many for today’s prospective students.

One group believes the solution may come from those who’ve already gone through it.

This fall, the Michigan College Access Network is deploying 40 recent college graduates to high schools across the state as part of its new AdviseMI program. Students at some 50 high schools, including three in the Lansing area, will have access to advisers well-versed in the art of the application, said Jacque Ruhland, co-director of AdviseMI.

“Our advisers will be able to help with college applications, filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) and well as organizing college visits,” Ruhland said. How to write the perfect college essay and applying for local and state scholarships are also potential topics.
