Speaking Events

Thank you to Maine South HS!

Thank you to Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Illinois! Christine VanDeVelde had a terrific time speaking with your students and parents and answering their questions about college visits, financial aid, researching colleges and more... With special thanks to College Counselor Stephanie Maksymiu and Director of Student Personnel Kevin Scotellaro.

College Admission is On the Road Again...

College Admission is on the road again... We'll be traveling for the next ten days to speak to students and parents in northern and southern California and Oregon. We'll still be posting and Tweeting and Pinteresting, but it will be lighter for the next week. Nevertheless, don't miss our weekly advice for juniors and seniors, the Q&A with our Counselor of the Month next Monday and the next guest post from Will Dix, aka The Crabby Counselor, who has some excellent advice for students about the college search. And, in the meantime, we'll be finding out what's on the minds of juniors and seniors -- and their families -- so we can provide even better advice about the college application process.

Thank you, thank you...

Thank you, thank you… to the students, parents, and administration of Sterling High School in Sterling, Illinois. College Admission spoke to more than 600 students last week at this high school in western Illinois. It was a pleasure to hear about their hopes, dreams and concerns -- and answer their questions about everything from grades and testing to performing arts as a major and support for learning differences.
