I have been writing this blog for more than twelve years. In that time, I’ve turned down many requests to carry advertisements. I’ve turned them down because writing 80-Something is my pleasure, not my job. But I am so excited about a new organization, Live College Tours by Nylie, that I have to tell you about it.
LiveCampusTours.com is a website that makes it possible for high school students thinking about which colleges to apply to, to “visit” the campuses they are considering without incurring the costs of having to go there. (It also makes it possible for students attending those colleges to earn some money by giving live one-on-one tours of their campus via smartphone.) College-bound kids can sit on their sofas at home and have a customized tour of any schools they might apply to.
If you know a child trying to choose colleges or the parent or grandparent of such a child or anyone with children or grandchildren in college who would like to be a (paid) guide please send them to Live Campus Tours. Our sons, Seth and Jeremy, are two of the founders.
Be sure to tell them that Judy Kugel sent you.
