College Reps Visit the Cavaliers

Students listen to a presentation by a representative from UNC-Chapel Hill.

CHS has continued its annual program of bringing in representatives from various colleges and universities this fall to speak to interested juniors and seniors. During these visits, students receive information about the admissions process, admissions deadlines, admissions requirements, open house events, majors, campus life, financial aid, scholarships, study abroad, and much more.

“These admissions visits are a chance for students to preview colleges and universities. Students can also make connections with admissions counselors, these are the same people who will be reviewing admissions applications – so it is a chance for them to put a face with the name. Seniors have a chance to ask questions about the applications and juniors have a chance to see if this is a school they are interested in and then possibly plan a campus tour or attend an open house,” said Deanna Devine, CHS Head Counselor.

Representatives from schools as close as Queens University and UNC-Charlotte have visited; as well as from universities such as Duke, ECU, NC State, UNC-Chapel Hill, and UNC-Asheville. Out of state schools include the Savannah College of Art and Design, Clemson, the University of Alabama, and many more. A complete list of schools and links for students to sign up can be found on the CHS Counseling website and by clicking here.

A unique event is coming up on November 13. CHS will be holding on-site admissions for Wingate University. Students will have an opportunity to meet with an admissions counselor from Wingate and find out right then if they are accepted to the university. Wingate will also be awarding scholarships on site! The application is free. Students must submit paperwork to Mrs. Devine by October 30 to participate. Click here for more information or drop by the Coundeling department.

“The college visits have been going great! We have had anywhere from 20 students to 100 students attending these visits. Students are actively participating and asking questions,” said Devine.

“We want to connect students to colleges and what better way to do that than to bring the campuses to Cuthbertson?” she smiled.

Feel free to contact the CHS Counseling Department with any questions.
