It’s Time We Talk: Tips for a Successful College Interview
7 p.m. Thursday, May 13
You've surfed the web, joined the mailing list and maybe even toured the campus. It's time to move on to the next phase of your college search. The college interview is an opportunity to share your story, unveil the myth behind the mystery of an applicant file and dig deeper in learning about the colleges on your list. But what if you feel anxious? What if you forget what you were going to say? What if you just don't have the answer to the question? This workshop will review interview prep, sample questions and how to handle sticky situations so you will leave the interview having improved your chance of admission.
Breaking Barriers: A Toolkit for First-Generation Students
7 p.m. Thursday, May 20
Going to college is a monumental accomplishment for any incoming freshman, but for some students, this isn’t just a personal achievement - it’s a milestone for everyone in their family. First-generation college students can be a source of pride for a family, but being the first to pursue a college degree can also present unique challenges - namely, that they cannot benefit from their parents’ college experience. This workshop will explore what it means to be a first-generation student, discuss obstacles you may face, and offer tips and strategies on how to face them head-on.
Workshops for Prospective Families
Supporting Your Child Throughout the College Decision-Making Process
7 p.m. Thursday, April 15
Join Colleen Emerson, dean of admissions and mom of a Salve Regina sophomore, as she discusses how to guide your child to find their new home. Ultimately the decision is theirs, but for 17 years you have watched them grow, you have seen them face challenges and you know where they thrive. Your role is valuable, but when do you push and when do you let go? We will talk about supporting them as they make their final decision on where they will be heading next fall. From navigating the influences of friends to talking about the financial investment, you play an important part in helping them find their way.
