Cazenovia Public Library news
(Cazenovia, NY – Jan. 2012) On Wednesday, Jan. 11, at 7 p.m. in the Cazenovia Public Library Community Room, families with middle school, high school or college students will have a second opportunity to join Paul Celuch, co-founder of College Assistance Plus, for an enjoyable and stimulating workshop entitled “Get a Degree…not Debt.”
The workshop will focus on how to find the right career, major and college, and then how to negotiate better deals even while enrolled in college or graduate school. Learning how the college business model works and how award decisions are made enables families and students to leverage much better deals at their college of choice.
Celuch, a national speaker on this topic, has been highlighted in the New York Times for having developed a unique specialization in this field. By using his national database and team of college experts at their Rochester national service center, better financial arrangements can be accomplished.
The workshop is free and open to the public. For more information, call (315) 655-9322 or visit cazenoviapubliclibrary.org.
