College Counseling Workshop 2014
The annual "Applying to College" workshop sponsored by the Admissions Office has been scheduled for Friday, June 6, 2014 of Reunion Weekend at McCardell Bicentennial Hall. High school age children and grandchildren of Middlebury alumni, faculty and staff as well as students from Vermont high schools are invited. Preference is given to juniors in high school. This program gives an overview of the general selective college application process and does not focus on Middlebury College. It runs from 8:15 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. and covers five areas of the college application process: 1) choosing a college; 2) how to visit a college; 3) how a college admits its class; 4) financial aid; and 5) understanding the common application--a hands on session. Following the final presentation, individual afternoon appointments can be scheduled with Student Financial Services.
In addition, for any students who are interested specifically in Middlebury College, a group information session will be conducted at 1:30 P.M. and campus tours will be offered at 2:30 P.M.
The required registration deadline is Thursday, May 29, 2014. Parents are invited to all activities.
