Cavs Begin College Planning

CHS juniors and seniors had the opportunity to learn about East Carolina University through skyping with an admissions counselor. East Carolina is just one of the many colleges speaking with CHS students over the course of the fall.

Approximately 60 CHS juniors and seniors had the opportunity to participate in a Skype session with an admissions counselor from East Carolina University recently. This session was just one of many college visits that are occurring throughout this fall and arranged by the CHS Guidance department in order to give students one on one contact with university representatives. In some cases the representatives visit our school campus in person and in other cases they Skype with groups of students. The admissions counselors explain admissions requirements, tips and tricks regarding applications, campus life and housing options, dining halls and meal plans, academic programs and majors, as well as extracurricular options. Students also have the chance to ask questions.

Juniors and seniors may view the schedule of college visits on the Guidance page of the CHS website and sign up for the school visits that interest them. Along with East Carolina, students have had the opportunities to hear from Pfeiffer University, Appalachian State, Elon University, Johnson and Wales University, and UNC-Charlotte. Future sessions include University of Georgia, South Piedmont Community College, University of Tennessee, Duke University, UNC-Chapel Hill, Lenoir-Rhyne University and Wingate University. Other schools may be added so students are encouraged to check the website often for updates.

The CHS Guidance Department also maintains a list of current scholarship opportunities on the website as well as many helpful resources for college planning and testing success. Be sure and check it often for updates. Feel free to contact any member of our Guidance Department with questions!
