Dane Anthony is a father, a former Student Affairs administrator and a current adjunct instructor of religion – with the launch of his new website, www.collegeparent101.com, Anthony showcases both aspects of his life. College Parent 101 is a site dedicated to the transitional issues and concerns of parents and students. It provides insight on student growth and development, relational transition issues, tips for successful parents, additional resources and a regular “reflection” series.
In addition, a DVD of Anthony’s live presentation is now available. The DVD is enhanced with extra resources not available elsewhere.
Anthony has been presenting the College Parent seminar for 10 years and knew by the responses he received that the information was both helpful and desired by parents and their students. Anthony’s site addresses many transitional topics that families of college students are invested in but cannot seem to get information on anywhere else.
Anthony gets his information from various sources – his own experiences, behavior he has observed in his 25-year career in higher education and his own memories of when his children went away to school.
He hopes that his words and information will create a conversational dynamic throughout families and their journeys. Anthony agrees that although his information is intended to guide parents and their children, “there is no ‘right way’ to do this – the process of transitioning your children to college is unique to each family and unique to each daughter or son in the family. I would hope, in time, that parents would begin sharing their experiences with each other through the site, providing a community of shared interests.”
