Colleges That Change Lives, Inc. (CTCL) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement and support of a student-centered college search process. We were founded as a result of a book of the same name, Colleges That Change Lives, researched and written by retired New York Times education editor Loren Pope. Mr. Pope passed away in Sept. 2008 but his mission lives on through the work of CTCL.
In following Mr. Pope’s ideals, we believe that the criteria most college bound students and their parents and counselors use, such as name and prestige, do not acknowledge the importance of understanding an individual student’s needs and how they “fit” with the mission and identity of an individual college community.
The CTCL program features admission officials from the schools profiled in the third edition of Colleges That Change Lives. The program begins with a panel discussion designed to encourage students to make the college search process a well-informed journey that leads to the best possible outcome: finding the right college fit for them.
All CTCL events are free of charge, and pre-registration is not required.
Emory & Henry College is proud to be a part of this outstanding group. Please make plans to talk with Allie Austin, Assistant Director of Admissions, regarding additional information surrounding Emory & Henry College during the college fair portion of this event following the aforementioned panel discussion.
