Description

Honor Student Reception

Connecting Admissions Recruiters and

High Achieving Underrepresented Minority High School Juniors


Congratulations!

In recognition of your excellent academic record and the unique challenges facing underrepresented minority students during the college admissions process, you are invited to attend an Honor Student Reception. The Reception offers a unique experience for juniors, who have a 3.5 GPA (unweighted) or above. You will gain exposure to the nuanced admissions processes of colleges and universities that fit your abilities. Additionally, you will be exposed to financial aid and academic resources. Unlike large all-inclusive college fairs, and pre-programmed slide presentations, the Honor Student Reception will give you an opportunity to talk one-on-one with Admissions Recruiters in a small, interactive environment.
