Meet Mr. White, your college adviser

Hey Spartans! My name is Jon White and I graduated from Davidson College in 2019. I'm from Durham, and I love being outside and cooking good food, preferably at the same time.

Are you the first person in your family to go to college? If so, learn more about the first-generation college experience here!

Home-cooked College Advising

That's right, just like a home-cooked meal, helping you find your next step in life requires patience, care, and a little hard work. Home-cooked also means it's for the family, so parents, I would love to get to know you as well and answer any questions you have! Get in touch with me on the contact page of this website to get my help with any stage of the college-going process, including:

  • College search

  • ACT/SAT registration

  • Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completion

  • Residency Determination Service (RDS) completion

  • Scholarship search

  • College applications
