Utilizing your Resources, Now and Beyond

In the wake of COVID many campuses have relied on various resources on our campuses to help assist admissions officers with students. This session will go over how to best utilize your resources from Student Ambassadors, to military connection centers, transfer centers, your personal admission contact, and more.  Should you be logging in to Zooms or Webinars? What about booking meetings and virtual tours? Exploring Career Centers? We will help you figure it all out!

The LGBTQ+ College Search

Hear from Admissions professionals about ways in which you can better navigate the college search, application and decision process as an LGBTQ+ student.

Finding your fit as a minority

The college search process can overwhelm any students - even more so as an minority student.  Counselors and colleges are always saying look for where you “fit” best, but what exactly does “fit” mean?  This session will provide tips to helping finding an institution that truly fits you, academically and socially.
