We're kicking off our Wellesley Webinar series for students tomorrow, Wednesday, February 26, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. EST, with our first webinar, A Stress-Free Approach to College Planning. We'll review college planning strategy, organizational tips, and questions for students to start thinking about as they build a college list. Additionally, we'll give students first-hand advice on how to get the most out of their college visits, with an overview of Wellesley's spring and summer visit offerings. The webinar is intended for students and their family members but we encourage school counselors and representatives from community based organizations to join us. We'll leave ample time for students to get their questions answered live.
Please encourage any high school girls who may be interested to register.
A full list of future webinar topics can be found on our website.
