For teens and parents Visiting colleges is an important part of the college choice process.  Preparing for those visits can help you determine whether the school is a place you can grow and thrive, as well as enhance your admissions status (learn what it means to “demonstrate interest” and set your application apart!). Spend an hour learning about how to evaluate a school when you are on campus, developing a list of core questions to ask as well as key elements to identify. Food, dorms, health care, course selection, professor availability… All of these and more will be explored! This program will be presented by College Admissions Consultant Jodi Rosenshein Atkin. Sponsored by the Friends of Penfield Public Library. REGISTRATION is required and begins March 2.
