Alma Mater is Latin for Soul Mother and the term is often used to refer to the college from which a person graduates. This is in recognition of the emotional and spiritual growth that occurs during the college years. At Alma Mater College Admission Consultants, I recognize the importance of selecting the right college. I work with students to help them create a list of colleges where they will grow both intellectually and emotionally, and then help them through the application process. My goal is to educate students and parents so they can approach the application process from a base of knowledge rather than stress and fear.
