What Folks Are Saying about The College Companion (“The Ultimate Organizer”)

“Used diligently, this planner will help your student stay organized for his or her classes and extra-curricular activities . Even if you suspect your child will take notes on the back of a pizza box instead of in a binder, this resource gives your college-bound student a scope of what to expect and how to be prepared.” — Carolina Parent Magazine

“The Ultimate Organizer is right on the money; very comprehensive; really would give students a sense of what they’ll experience when going to college; with concrete suggestions regarding scheduling time and reaching out (whether it’s to a friend or a professor). I would certainly recommend it to students going on to college.” — Russell Colver, Academic Consultant and Coach, Duke University

“I found out that I can be better organized by writing assignments, appointments, things of that nature in my organizer. It enables me to be prepare when I have deadlines for tests or what not. I also found out strategies for managing my time better. Dr. Orenstein offered alot of information that I was looking for, gave me confidence and showed me that I can be successful but I have to work at it.” –J. W. Greensboro College

“My Mom gave me your “Ultimate Organizer” as a gift before I leave for school. I’m writing to tell you how impressed I am by your organizer. I’ve seen my fair share of products targeted at the college-bound student audience, but I’ve never seen such a comprehensive and interesting book. I can’t even imagine the amount of research, time, effort, and heart that went in to creating such a unique project, but I want to let you know that it was well worth it because I can’t imagine that the other owners of this manual had reactions any less than mine. I’ve already started to fill it with important dates and numbers, and I’m hoping to finish reading it on the plane ride to the Airport tomorrow.” –Allison R.
