So you want your kid to get into college?

If your lifelong dream has been to get your children into Penn or Swarthmore, or Villanova, or Penn State, or the College of New Jersey or any college the Undergraduate Admissions Office would like to help you out.

In seminars on Sept. 8 and 9, Admissions Office staff will address some of the major concerns parents and teenagers have about the admissions process: How important are test scores, extracurricular activities, recommendations and interviews? What courses should aspiring collegians take in high school? What about financial aid? Should I visit the campus beforehand?

No matter whether your child plans to attend a large or small, public or private college, the College Admissions Seminars for faculty and staff can help make the process easier.

  • COLLEGE ADMISSIONS SEMINARS: 5:15 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 8 and Thursday, Sept. 9 in Room 200, College Hall, Locust Walk between 34th and 36th streets. Admission free; RSVP requested: 215-898-8587.
