Class of 2024 Meet With College Representatives as Application Process Begins
This fall, representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities will visit St. Margaret’s to meet with interested students.
As the Class of 2024 begins the college-application process, St. Margaret’s College Counseling Office is hard at work connecting students with representatives from colleges and universities as they begin to put a list of potential fits together.
This fall, representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities will visit St. Margaret’s to meet with interested students, where they discuss admission requirements, student life, academic opportunities and more. Often, the admission representative who comes to St. Margaret’s is the same who will be the first to read a student’s application, and the visits allow for insight and conversation in individual or small-group settings.
There were eight schools on campus just this week, including American University, Chapman University, Claremont McKenna College, Hampden-Sydney College, Lehigh University, St. Mary’s College of California, the University of Michigan and the University of Oregon.
The visits from colleges and universities across the country and around the world will continue through September and into October, and the College Counseling Office is planning more programming as the admissions process gets going, including a Senior College Night on Monday where St. Margaret’s college counselors review what families can expect this semester as students navigate the application process.
St. Margaret’s has four college counselors working individually and in groups with Upper School students throughout the school year—Director of College Counseling Elise Rodriguez, Senior Associate Director of College Counseling Amy Warren, and Associate Directors of College Counseling Erica Huerta and Ben Lah.
