In collaboration with Penn Human Resources, Penn Admissions will host workshops for Penn faculty and staff families with high school age teenagers to help answer questions about the college search process. 
College-bound students and their parents can be overwhelmed by the choices and requirements of college admission. What courses are important to take in high school?  How significant are good grades, extracurricular activities, essays, high test scores, and interviews?  What should a prospective student look for in a college? 
Workshops on Wednesday, June 24 will discuss these questions and more with Penn faculty and staff and their families, whether students plan to apply to Penn or elsewhere.  The program will feature Dean of Admissions Eric J. Furda C’87, Joel B. Carstens, University Director of Financial Aid, as well as Penn Admissions staff who will lead grade specific discussions and exercises.

Registration is no longer available because the registration deadline has passed.
