Admissions Seminars for Penn Faculty/Staff Families
September 2, 2008, Volume 55, No. 2

College-bound teenagers 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, are here on campus and available to Penn faculty and staff and their families, whether their students plan to apply to Penn or elsewhere.

The Undergraduate Admissions Office will host two seminars for Penn families whose teenagers are beginning the college search process. Admissions Officers will 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 sessions will focus on the college selection process for large and small, public and private universities and colleges.

Both sessions will be held in Claudia Cohen Hall, Room 17, Wednesday, September 3 from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m., and repeated on Thursday, September 4 from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m.

The seminars are free; RSVP to Maria Dantis at mariad@admissions.upenn.edu or call (215) 898-1886. Please include in your e-mail: the session you will attend, how many will be attending, the faculty/staff name, the student’s name and their high school.
