Fischler College of Education Graduate Publishes Book for College Freshmen

Sueohrablo

Sue Ohrablo, Ed.D.

Sue Ohrablo, Ed.D., graduate of the Abraham S. Fischler College of Education has published a new book entitled The Pocket Advisor: A Family Guide to Navigating College. Drawing from over 30 years working in higher education in the field of academic advising and student services, Ohrablo provides college-bound and new college students valuable information to help them successfully navigate institutional resources, policies, and procedures and provides guidance for academic planning, decision-making, and problem-solving. The Pocket Advisor includes checklists, worksheets, and tips that students can use as they strive to competently navigate their first year of college.

“Students often find navigating college confusing and often frustrating” says Ohrablo. “I want to give them the tools and information they will need to effectively make decisions, avoid obstacles, and develop positive relationships with institutional personnel.”

The Pocket Advisor has widespread uses and will benefit high-school counselors and colleges who want to support their freshmen, first-generation, first-time-in-college (FTIC) and international students.

Ohrablo is also the author of High-Impact Advising: A Guide for Academic Advisors, and currently works as a higher education consultant and serves as an adjunct professor at St. Thomas University. She earned her doctorate degree from FCE in 2009.
