College Prep Workshop – Navigating the College Process
Tuesday’s Children hosted the annual Navigating the College Process Workshop on Sunday, October 23, 2011. 100 family members were guided through the important steps necessary by Matthew Greene and Ginger Miller of Howard Greene and Associates, Dr. Patricia Peek, Associate Dean of Admissions at Fordham University and Noreen Cambria, Director of Guidance at Cold Spring Harbor High School. They each shared their expertise on navigating through all aspects of the college application process.
The Families of Freedom Scholarship Fund along with the British Council were also able to provide the families helpful information on scholarships in the United States as well as in the United Kingdom.
High School Seniors had the unique opportunity to meet for a private one-on-one session with guidance experts who reviewed their admission essays along with their personalized applications. As one facilitator commented, “I met a very diverse group of students in the individual sessions with a broad spectrum of interests and issues.” Tuesday’s Children extends a sincere and heartfelt thank you to Fordham University for providing the venue and lunch for the workshop.
