Office of Undergraduate Admission to Host General College Admissions Webinar
With college application season right around the corner, high school students and their parents are beginning to think about finding the school that’s best for them. On Tuesday, July 21, from noon to 1 p.m., Georgia Tech’s Office of Undergraduate Admission will host a webinar about “The Basics of College Admission” The informational session is open to members of the Tech community and their high school-aged family members.
Ashley Meyer, director of Academic and College Counseling at Holy Spirit Preparatory School in Atlanta (and former Georgia Tech staff member), will moderate a virtual conversation featuring Mary Tipton Woolley, senior associate director of Undergraduate Admission, and Rick Clark, director of Undergraduate Admission. Participants will discuss the landscape of college admissions, provide tips and insights about the process, and help families consider important questions along the way.
“The college admission experience can at times seem mysterious or daunting. Given all of the questions surrounding Covid-19 and its impacts, families have more questions than ever,” said Clark. “This session will be helpful for Tech staff and faculty as they consider visiting, applying, and ultimately selecting a college.” Clark also recently coauthored a book about the college admission process that emphasizes keeping a positive family environment during a stressful time of life.
The event will not be specific to Georgia Tech admission, but will cover the college admission process as a whole, no matter where students apply. Registration is required to attend the event; you can do so here.
