College Bound: Keeping Ties to Home
The Patch newsletter and smart phone apps are great ways for young scholars to keep up with news back home.
As summer winds down, there are two great--and easy--ways to help your college student stay in touch with hometown news. Sign your student up for Des Plaines Patch’s newsletter (you'll find the sign-up button at the top of Des Plaines Patch's homepage), and let them know about adding the Patch apps for iPhone and Android.
Des Plaines Patch is a one-stop-shop to keep your family scholar up-to-date on local news and high school happenings (go Warriors!). Maybe your student wants to share their collegiate experiences with the community? Blogging on Patch may be just the thing. Did we mention it's all free?
Good luck to all college bound students. Visit often!
