Making the College Transition

On April 28, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., The Wellington School, located at 3650 Reed Road, will host New York Times bestselling author and nationally syndicated columnist, Harlan Cohen, author of The Naked Roommate. 


Cohen has helped millions of students (and their parents) make the transition to college life as well as other life transitions such as jobs, teen years to adulthood, parenthood, relationships, and more. Plan to attend this candid, unpredictable, and hilarious evening event.


This event is free and open to the public, but an RSVP is required.  Please RSVP to 


Harlan Cohen is a New York Times bestselling author of five books, a professional speaker, and syndicated advice columnist. His writing career began at Indiana University’s school newspaper. He shifted his path toward advice after interning at The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.


When he returned to campus, Cohen immediately launched his Help Me, Harlan! advice column. At first, he wrote questions and answers to himself. When he started to help himself, he knew he was good. Then real letters started rolling in. His balance of honest advice, helpful resources, and sharp humor turned the column into an instant success on and off campus.


As the column spread, Cohen began writing books, speaking on college campuses, launching websites, and creating original music to bring the topics addressed in his writing to life. Harlan’s writing has been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal Classroom Edition, Real Simple, Details magazine, Seventeen, Psychology Today, and hundreds of other newspapers and publications. He has been a guest on hundreds of radio and television programs including CNN and the Today Show.
