Admissions Seminars for Penn Faculty/Staff Families
September 8, 2009, Volume 56, No. 02

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions will host two seminars for Penn families with teenagers in high school to help answer questions about the college search process.

College-bound students and their parents 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 to these questions and many more will be discussed with Penn faculty and staff and their families, whether students plan to apply to Penn or elsewhere.

Admissions officers will also discuss how to get the most out of a campus visit, creating a strong application, what it takes to gain admission to college, and other issues such as financial aid. 

The admissions seminar will be held in College Hall 200, Wednesday, September 9, from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m., and repeated on Thursday, September 10, from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m.

The seminars are free. RSVP to John Baumgardner at johnbaum@admissions.upenn.edu or at (215) 746-6952. Please include in your e-mail the session you will attend, how many will be attending, the faculty/staff member’s name, the student’s name and high school, and the year they expect to graduate high school.
