We continue to host college representatives for daytime visits to PA in September and October. These are scheduled before and after school, as well as during elective periods. For the list of visiting colleges (and the visit pass protocol for visits during class periods), the visit schedule is posted in Naviance Student, in student AM/PM announcements, and HERE.
- Regional College Information Sessions: Colleges will also inform our office (and students on their mailing lists) about public information sessions they are hosting in the Twin Cities region. These events are typically held at hotels, public libraries, or schools on weeknights or weekend afternoons. Students will receive information directly from colleges if they are on their mailing lists. Many colleges make note of an applicant’s “demonstrated interest” during admission deliberations. This favors students who have visited campus, attended the college’s visit to the high school, spoken to a college representative at a college fair, or accepted an invitation to meet with an admission representative during his or her stay in the Twin Cities. Even if a student has a conflicting obligation, he or she should send the admissions representative a simple email indicating that he or she is unable to make it. This sort of engagement and courtesy goes a long way towards establishing your student’s demonstrated interest in their high priority colleges.
- The MN National College Fair is scheduled for October 4-5 at the Minneapolis Convention Center and includes an evening session for parents and students to attend with less traffic at college booths on the evening of October 4.
