Virtual College/University Information Sessions (2020-2021 Academic School Year)

Dear Seniors and Juniors, 

In the past, admissions counselors from various colleges and universities have visited ARGS to discuss the educational opportunities offered by their schools. At the present time, all college and university informational sessions will be virtual. Some schools have elected to provide links to informational sessions (you select the date and time) on their website (***see list below). In addition, the School Counseling Office will schedule additional virtual information sessions. Please check your emails on a regular basis for updates. Thank you!
