#campuschatThis week’s #CampusChat is hosted by Suzanne Shaffer (suzanneshaffer) and Wendy David-Gaines (@pocsmom). Together they’re kicking off a new monthly #CampusChat series: Wednesday’s Parent.

Suzanne and Wendy will host #CampusChat on the 4th Wednesday of every month providing parents with information to help them navigate the college maze. Their chats will cover a range of topics from basic parenting to college prep to surviving the empty nest.

Each week, Suzanne and Wendy collaborate on a blog series: Wednesday’s Parent. They post about the same topic each week with different perspectives from their respective blogs: Parents Countdown to College Coach and POCSmom.

Their first co-hosted chat, Wednesday at 9PM ET, covers the topic of the college power shift before the college applications are sent compared with what happens after the offers of admission are received.
