College Search Workshops for Penn Faculty and Staff Families

August 22, 2018

n collaboration with Penn Human Resources, Penn Undergraduate Admissions will host workshops for Penn faculty and staff families with rising high school sophomores through senior students to help answer questions about the college search process.

College-bound students and their parents often wonder where to begin with the overwhelming number of choices and requirements of college admission. What courses are important to take in high school? How significant are good grades, extracurricular activities, essays, test scores, and interviews? What should a prospective student look for in a college?

Workshops on Wednesday, August 22nd will discuss these questions and more with Penn faculty and staff and their current high school students, whether students plan to apply to Penn or elsewhere. The program will run from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in Claire Fagin Hall, School of Nursing, 418 Curie Boulevard, and will feature Eric J. Furda C’87, Dean of Admissions; as well as Penn Admissions staff who will lead discussions and exercises. Penn Student Financial Services and Tuition Benefits information will also be readily available. If you have questions, please contact
