Admissions Seminars for Penn Faculty/Staff Families

College-bound teenagers and their parents often can be overwhelmed by the choices and requirements of college admissions. What courses are important to take in high school? How significant are extracurricular activities, essays, test scores, and interviews?

The answers are right here on campus and available to Penn employees and their families, whether their students plan to apply to Penn or elsewhere.

The Undergraduate Admissions Office will host two seminars for Penn families whose teenagers are beginning the college search process. One session will be held at 5:15 p.m. on Tuesday, September 3 in the Ben Franklin Room of Houston Hall; it will be repeated on Thursday, September 5, also at 5:15 p.m., in the Terrace Room in Logan Hall.

The sessions will focus on the college selection process for large and small, public and private colleges. Admissions officers will discuss what it takes to gain admission to a competitive college, how to get the most out of a campus visit, and other issues such as financial aid.

The seminars are free, and the office requests participants to RSVP to 898-7126, or seminars@admissions.ugao.upenn.edu.
