Resisting the College Complex, with Nikki Danos, College Counselor and Hannah Moskat, School Counselor
Rachel Simmons names the College Application Industrial Complex in her book, Enough As She Is, citing the intense pressures and apprehension that girls experience in anticipating college. At its worst, adoption of the College Application Industrial Complex fuels a pervasive sense of inadequacy and fruitless striving. Both students and their parents can find themselves making costly concessions; trading the joys of exploration and learning for fear and perfectionism. Instead, Simmons urges girls to resist the Complex, seeking ways to connect with genuine interests, harness the value of risk-taking and making mistakes, and redefine the path to happiness and success. Join us to discuss this powerful message and examine the ways we can encourage our girls, and ourselves, to resist the Complex.
