At Oi, we know that parents only want what's best for their children. We also know that selecting the right college is one of the biggest decisions a family can make. We're here to give parents the information and guidance they need to help their children make the best possible decision.
A college education has become increasingly important. Without it, a student-athlete faces the challenges of the 21st Century at a distinct disadvantage. But as the importance of a college education has increased, so has its cost. On average, tuition, housing, books and fees at a public university run about $10,000 a year. The cost of a private college can be 50 to 100% higher. Most families would be hard pressed to meet that kind of financial burden.
At the same time, few parents are able to devote the amount of time and energy it takes to evaluate the hundreds of colleges their children might attend. They don't have access to all of the information about academic standards, course offerings, housing options, geographical location, social interactions, alumni networks, financial aid and the dozens of other factors that can help them make the right decision about the future of their children.
