In Partnership with Collegewise  

Character Counts! Why Courage, Creativity and Collaboration Matter in College 
When applying to college, students and parents understand the role of grades, course rigor, and standardized testing. An increasingly important element is Social and Emotional Learning. In this presentation, you’ll learn how SEL distinguishes itself from academic factors and why even the most selective of colleges place an immense value on empathy, ethical behavior, and engagement with others. We will discuss this in relation to course selection, extracurricular activities, and building a smart college list. There will also be practical advice for students who are seeking to understand themselves better and portray the most authentic version of themselves in their applications. 

Presenters: Katie Sprague and Sydney Matthes; Collegewise

Navigating College Websites: A Behind the Scenes Tour 
You’ve probably spent hours on the admissions pages of college websites trying to learn about your colleges of choice. What if we told you some of the key places you should be gleaning information aren’t the admissions pages. What if we gave you an inside track to places you should look on university websites to get a holistic picture – a real picture – of what the university is all about! Learn from someone who has built college websites where to look for the REAL information that will help answer your questions.
