College Admissions Workshop, Summer
Explore the college admissions process during this 2-day workshop for Bucknell alumni, faculty and staff families. Our admissions experts will prepare your family for the college search and application process.
Student attendees will stay overnight in a campus residence hall, eat meals in the dining hall, get advice from current college students and experience Bucknell's campus. Parent attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in various workshop sessions.
Small and large group presentations will focus on topics such as:
- Searching for and researching appropriate colleges
- Writing a winning college essay
- Making the most of your college visit
- Financing a college education
Admissions staff will be on hand to review transcripts and provide course selection guidance (for rising juniors), and individual essay guidance and/or feedback (for rising seniors). There is a registration fee for the workshop.
