The result can be multiple changes in major, extended time in school getting a degree that might have only taken a few years if the student had thought about the process differently. Enter the group at PATH2™ who help students look at things a bit differently…decide on your career path first and THEN craft your college path around that decision. In essence, the group offers a way to stop doing college backward. It’s really interesting stuff they are doing over there at PATH2 and we spent some time with Vice President and Partner Dave DesRoshers to find out more about the program, how they change the way we look at going to college and how we pair that with a career path.
