By Allison Bice on 16 Oct 2020

ONE DREAM GOD DIDN'T LET ME FORGET

There is a way to make that happen and for many it's been the best decision they ever made. But don't get me wrong. Everyone needs to consider what kind of Gap Year they are going to take. 

The first time I heard about a Gap Year was when my son graduated high school and decided jumping into college wasn't on his agenda. Since then I've talked with a whole bunch of students wanting to take a Gap Year and many who already did it. Here are six things to seriously consider before pulling the trigger.
