Panel Discussion Featuring Parents of Yale College Alumni

Friday, August 27, 2021

The Event

Is there a best way to raise a child? How can you get a student admitted to the Ivy League? Is going to an Ivy League school the ultimate goal for a child? How to help a child deal with the culture gap and stress during his or her overseas studying? How to have better communication with a child who has already entered university? How to choose a major and a career path for a child? On August 27, Yale Center Beijing will host a special event—Panel Discussion Featuring Parents of Yale College Alumni. Four parents of Yale College alumni will share their experiences from raising their children.
