a powerful new resource for the university-bound

How does a family help its anxious leaver decide where to go to university?  Some of those destinations are far away, and their prospecti and websites tend to look pretty much the same.  But universities aren’t all the same.  The resourceful people at LinkedIn have now gathered up all profiles from people involved with universities and made them into LinkedIn University Pages — a hugely efficient way to show what a particular institution is really about!  It’s a way of eavesdropping on local culture, so to speak, and no prospectus or website can really offer that.  So get your youngster a LinkedIn account (the age limit is going down as of this writing), and let them plug in and see where they really want to go after Broughton!
