Each year Summer Seminar gathers seasoned professionals from both undergraduate admissions and secondary school college counseling to share “best practices” and address each aspect of a college counselor’s responsibilities. Participants will attend presentations as well as visit college campuses during Summer Seminar.

Who Should Attend? The ideal attendee is a first or second-year college counselor in a high school setting.
