Prepping high school seniors for college

As I am working more with college and young adults right now, I have been reflecting on things that I did over the course of working with youth. Especially in regards to how I prepped high school students for the college years.

As I am reflecting, one thing that stuck out to me the most was how little I did for the graduating seniors.  Sure we honored them during a service in June and had a lunch for them (in which 1 college student spoke to them about the importance of getting plugged in during their first year of college).  But other than that, I now feel that I missed the boat on really helping them shift through some important information as they processed this huge decision in their life.

What about you?  What do you do to prep your high school seniors for college?  TAKE A MINUTE and think through what you do for your high school students (especially the seniors).  Is it enough?  Could you do more?  Take the POLL and then add a comment or two about what you do and how that has helped your youth.
