LYNDONVILLE -- The annual Northeast Kingdom College Night for high school students and parents will be held tonight, March 30, on the campus of Lyndon State College.
The free college fair, sponsored by Lyndon Institute, Lyndon State College Upward Bound and St. Johnsbury Academy, runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m. High school juniors, sophomores, and their parents are particularly encouraged to attend to meet admissions representatives from more than 120 colleges and universities from New England and across the U.S. offering liberal arts as well as technical and business-oriented studies.
Back by popular demand, the Vermont Student Assistance Corp. will offer free college planning workshops before (starting at 4:15 p.m.) and after the college fair. Topics include finding colleges that fit, specifics on how to apply, SAT/ACT test prep and strategies, writing an admissions essay that sets you apart, and navigating college costs and financial aid. Free food will be provided to workshop attendees, and attendees will be entered in drawings for a chance to win an iPad, $500 college savings account and more! For more information and to register for workshops, visit www.vsac.org/CollegePathways.
Don't miss this great opportunity -- a double feature with two programs in one night -- for Northeast Kingdom students and families to get information and resources needed for applying and preparing for college. Students and parents say the workshops offer important information and insights to the college process.
