Resources

Welcome to the parent resource section of the website. These resources cover the spectrum from the college search process to transitioning into college. Some of these books are specifically for parents, others will be useful for both parents and students. If you have additional resources to recommend, please send them to me at parent.relations@geneva.edu.
