I’d like to share two sites today that can be useful to both English Language Learners and mainstream students as they begin to think about entering college.

One is a site on Student Resources: Financial Aid from St. Ambrose University that gives a fairly complete listing of free web resources for seeking scholarships.

The second is a web application called Ecampus Tours. It provides virtual tours of over 1200 different colleges. Of course, nothing beats a real visit, and we take our students to at least two local colleges. But E Campus Tours can help students think a little “outside the box.” In addition, the site has other helpful resources to students thinking about their future.

I’ve placed both links on my website under Careers.

Thanks to Phyllis’ Favorites for the tips.
