Nearly 200 Admission Representatives to Attend College Day

FWCD will welcome nearly 200 college admission representatives from across the U.S. and around the world at College Day 2017. The annual college fair takes place from 9-10:30 a.m., Friday, September 15, in the Round Gym. FWCD 11th- and 12th-grade students will be joined by juniors and seniors from All Saints’ Episcopal School, The Oakridge School, Trinity Valley School and Breakthrough Fort Worth. This year’s list of colleges attending College Day is available for students and families to browse here or on the College Counseling Class pages. 

During the college fair, college admission representatives will talk with students about their respective institution’s academic programs, campus life, and admission and financial aid processes. Students should review the suggestions in “Tips for a Successful College Fair” as they prepare for College Day, ensuring productive and informative interactions with college admission representatives.
 
In addition to College Day, students have the opportunity to meet with college representatives in the College Counseling Office. Each fall, the College Counseling Office hosts more than 150 individual college visits. Many of these visits are scheduled by institutions who also attend College Day, but the in-office visits allow for longer conversations, giving students an opportunity to ask specific questions. Visits last for half a class period, and the majority of visits take place in September and October. Juniors and seniors may seek teacher permission to attend these visits when during a class period; freshmen and sophomores may attend visits scheduled during their free period. A schedule of visits is available in Naviance. Additionally, a schedule of the week’s college visitors is posted outside the College Counseling Office.
 
Students can also learn about colleges by attending area information sessions. These programs are hosted by colleges wishing to reach students from a large geographic area with one event. Often hosted at hotels or local high schools, these meetings may be in Dallas, Fort Worth or the mid-cities area and usually take place on a weekday evening or weekends. Students and parents are invited by the college to attend area information sessions and should RSVP with the hosting college in advance of the event.
