College Open House

COLLEGE OPEN HOUSES
(updated 10/21/14)
Choosing a college is about finding the right fit—the right academic offerings, the right location, the right mix of people, and the right vibe. And, the only one who can decide if a college is right for you is YOU (not your sister, not your best-friend). For many students, the moment they discover that a college is right for them happens when they are visiting campus. Strolling college grounds, meeting students and faculty, visiting classes and residence halls - there's no better way to find out if you fit in. The best time to visit is on a weekday when classes are in session.  For more information of college open houses, visit the colleges' website.

Coast to Coast Tour

Date: October 5th, 2014

Website: http://www.coasttocoasttour.org/

A  joint travel partnership among Dartmouth College, Northwestern University, Princeton University, University of California-Berkeley, and Vanderbilt University. Because each of our institutions practices holistic admissions within a highly selective environment, we have partnered to offer insight into the seemingly complex admissions process.

Join us at one of our events across the country this fall. Event check-in will begin at 6:30 p.m. with the formal programming at 7:00 p.m. The program format will commence with an overview from each of the institutions, “Pearls of Wisdom” about navigating the process, audience question and answer, and finally the opportunity to ask any specific questions of the representatives at their individual tables. The programs will conclude at 9:00 p.m.
