About the Episode

The what's what...

In this episode, Jeremy chats with well known writer Eric Hoover from The Chronicle of Higher Education. They start by having a lengthy conversation about some of the different fears that most students deal with during their college search, as well as the lack of assistance and help that many receive. From there, Eric shares his thoughts on strengthening relationships between colleges and high school counselors, the ‘great resignation’ and ‘test optional’, and how he’s been able to get so many young people to open up and share their stories.
