Virtual College Visits from Colorado State University, Grove College, and Calvin College
Join us April 13th in the College Counseling virtual classroom for a presentation from Colorado State University. Colorado State is in Fort Collins, CO. Walt Disney used downtown Fort Collins as his inspiration for Disneyland's main street! This research university has great programs not only in science and technology but the performing arts as well.
Also, in the College Counseling classroom, Grove City College will be visiting on April 20th. The college is located in Grove City, PA, and is aChristian liberal arts college. One of the school's goals is to make education affordable. Total cost of attendance is $26,000 (that is everything!) which means every student is virtually receiving a scholarship to attend, making admission more competitive and resulting in a very high caliber student body.
April 27th we will host Calvin College in the virtual classroom. Calvin is in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and is a Christian liberal arts college as well. Calvin is one of the few Christian colleges who offer engineering and is well known for its science programs. Remember College Counseling live is on Mondays at 1:30 pm (PST) in the College Counseling virtual classroom.
