College Visits will be CRAZY these next few weeks. Admissions reps from colleges all over the country will be in town for this coming Sunday’s National College fair at the Phoenix Convention Center. Make sure to look at the list of college admissions officers visiting Desert Mountain by logging into Naviance or stopping by the College and Career Center. A list is posted outside the door and Mrs. Loftus will be happy to show you how to sign up if you are not familiar with the process.
Tomorrow Trinity University will hold an admissions presentation during 2nd period in the college and career center. This is a great school in San Antonio Texas. Students from Desert Mountain with good grades and decent SAT/ACT scores looking for a great education and sports loving university may consider looking at what Trinity has to offer.
Thursday we will host admissions counselors from UNLV - a WUE school, Tulane, American, Case Western, Iowa State and Southern Methodist Universities. Don’t forget, these next few weeks are the best opportunity for students to do college research without traveling to campuses. Talk with your teachers and sign up in Naviance today.
Tomorrow the Scholarship Search presentation will take place during lunch. This is for all grade levels and all are welcome. It is never too early to start thinking about the cost of your college education.
