Admissions Seminars for Penn Faculty/Staff Families
September 5, 2006, Volume 53, No. 2

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 faculty and staff 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 from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, September 6 in College Hall 200; another will be repeated on Thursday, September 7, also from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. at the same location.

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 Angela Sweeney at angelas@admissions.upenn.edu or call (215) 898-2886.

Please include in your email: the session you will attend, how many will be attending, the faculty/staff name, the student’s name and their high school.
