questions about college?
College Preview Program is
The Office of Admissions and Records will again host a College Preview
Program to assist UI faculty and staff members with high school students
beginning the college search process. The program is from 7:30 to 9
p.m. Aug. 7 on the third floor of the Levis Faculty Center.
The College Preview Program has been designed to offer guidance in developing
a plan to gather information in an organized manner and to approach
the college search in a way that allows families to make an informed
decision. The information presented will not be specific just to the
UI. A member of the Office of Student Financial Aid as well as the Career
Center also will be participating in the evenings activities.
Topics will include:
*How students and families can prepare for the college search.
* How to select an institution with the best fit for the student.
* What students can do to enhance their chances in the application process.
* How to make an informed decision when selecting a major and career
* How to get the most out of financial aid.
