Introducing the Future College Parent Podcast!

Introducing The Future College Parent Podcast! The podcast is dedicated to arming our #originalinfluencer parents with free information and resources to help the next generation of students prepare, choose, and finance college. I’ve released what I’m calling the ‘First 6 Episode Premiere,’ with links below, so listeners can binge on the episodes! Access to the show is very important to me so the show is streaming directly from the website and there’s no need to download anything, just point your browser to and enjoy. The show is also on your favorite podcast platforms as well (or will be shortly).

I’d really appreciate if you would give it a listen and if you think it’s good, share the podcast widely to parents, leaders of activities students are involved in, and your school administrators so they can share with your school district.  After listening to the first six episode premier, be on the lookout for new episodes beginning on Wednesday, May 4 and continuing Wednesday’s every two weeks after.  Thanks for your support! – Justin

Future College Parent Podcast - Suzanne

Create your locker combo – Suzanne Gluck

The fourth episode of the Future College Parent Podcast features Ms. Suzanne Gluck, Guidance Counselor at East Williston Union Free School District. This episode is special to me because Suzanne was actually a student of mine back when I worked in the college housing program at the University at Buffalo. I remember Suzanne as an undergraduate student herself, and specifically the joy, the energy, and the passion she has for life. It’s such a thrill to see her now helping students navigate all that is high school and beyond. She’s super knowledgeable and is such as caring professional. What a great honor for me to see how much Suzanne has grown. I’m extremely proud of her! And I’m confident you’ll see in our talk how she provides a solid structure for students but allows them to exhibit their own creativity to achieve their individual goals.
