Magellan Hits The Road For Denver

This week, I’ll be attending the National Association for College Admission Counseling’s annual conference.  Independent counselors, school-based counselors and admissions officials at the college level will all converge on Denver to discuss trends in admissions and to meet each other.  [This is just one reason that when you look for a college counselor, you should ask if they are members of NACAC and other professional organizations.]

I’ll report back in 2 weeks to share what I learned and my impressions about the colleges I’ll be visiting:  Colorado College, University of Denver, University of Northern Colorado, and Colorado State University.

Many colleges travel during the fall, hosting local information sessions in our area.  If your student is a sophomore or junior, it’s not too early to start attending these information sessions!  

For starters, check out these opportunities:

Tulane University – TOMORROW (9/30), 5 pm at the Doubletree in Santa Monica
