College Visits at Maggie Walker

Posted on

LogoOver 80 colleges and universities are scheduled to visit students at MLWGS over the course of the fall. Juniors and Seniors are encouraged to attend these visit sessions for colleges that interest them and learn more about other schools of which they are not familiar. During these visits, admissions representatives will review the programs offered at their school as well as answer questions about the admissions process and any other topics. Smaller colleges are often hoping to get to know some of their prospective students personally and may provide their contact information for follow up questions. We have tried to arrange college visits for 11:30 a.m. (lunch time) whenever possible and most of them will take place in the Counseling Office. For any college visit that is NOT offered during lunch time (most are), students MUST complete a Green College Meeting Pass and have it signed by a teacher PRIOR to the class they would miss. The college meeting passes are located on Ms. Hicks’ desk in the Counseling Office lobby.

Students can either view a complete list of the colleges that will be visiting in Naviance or check the hard copy lists that will be posted on the bulletin boards around the school. You can view/sign up for a college visit in Naviance under the “colleges” tab and by clicking “view all upcoming visits” on the right-hand side of the screen under “Upcoming college visits.” Then click “sign up” next to any sessions you plan to attend. Signing up is not mandatory, but extremely helpful for finding the appropriately sized space.
