Newfound freedom can be a minefield for entering freshmen

Atlanta, GA—March 31, 2015---Do you remember finishing schools? Well, Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute (Core Edge) has brought the concept back. Only this time, it is online and geared to preparing students for the social dangers of college life. Core Edge’s version attempts to assuage parental fears and ensure student success. According to the U.S. Department of Education, 59% of entering freshmen graduate college. The Department of Education cites the causes as students’ inability to balance work and academics as well as students’ lack of self-discipline. Core Edge developed online tutorials that address the most obvious problems from picking the ideal roommate to living comfortably on a college budget to socializing in ways that grades don’t suffer. All in an attempt to make social activities submit to academics. 

Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute founder Edward Brown says, “These tutorials were developed based on our research, which asked parents about their greatest fears for their child entering college. Parents cited safety and the ability to be self-reliant as the greatest concerns for their children. With these parental concerns in mind, we created a quasi-finishing school, which provides those practical life skills that parents might have touched on, but need reinforcing. Because Core Edge has strengths in law enforcement and academic arenas, we used best practices for ensuring that students are equipped with the tools for managing social challenges.”  

Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute is an applied research and Internet marketing company that creates digital products and services to solve problems in niche markets. Core Edge Image & Charisma Institute was founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 2002.
