SUBJECT: Register for The Big Virtual - College Admissions Fair - September 25th

Dear student,

On September 25th, Stadium High School is facilitating an online college fair called The Big Virtual - College Admissions Fair at the school. We’re expecting several hundred colleges to attend and strongly recommend you participate in the event. Chances are your dream school will be present at the fair.

At the virtual fair you will interact with department heads of your favorite college using tools you’re familiar with such as live streaming, text, and video chat. You can learn the details and register for the event by visiting https://CollegeFair.TheBigVirtual.com/Register.

Those registered for the event will be excused from class to participate as long as you have a signed Class Clearance form and will report to the Career Center at that time. You'll be provided with a computer, or you can use your mobile device to participate at the fair (bring your headphones). We also encourage that parents attend the event alongside you to help in asking questions. We will have staff available during the fair to help you regarding signing in to and navigating the event in addition to the live chat help you can receive once online.

Students are welcome to visit the Career Center at anytime during the day to participate in the virtual fair! Please bring headphones with you!

If you plan to attend, please register right away, and good luck in your college search!

I have an exciting event here at PDZA coming up soon that I want to share with you.

We are proud to be the hosts of the 3rd Annual Youth Ocean Conservation Summit Puget Sound on Saturday, October 7th! Together with teens from Seattle Aquarium our teens are working hard to plan this upcoming event. Students in grades 7-12 with an interest in conservation, environmental science, or marine science will learn from local experts and work with fellow youth to develop the skills necessary to plan and execute their own ocean conservation projects. After a day full of speakers, workshops, and project time, students will leave with an action plan to carry out their own conservation project in their community and the opportunity to apply for a grant of up to $200 to help fund the project. Check out www.pdza.org/yocs for more information and to register!

If you want an inside look into a highly selective admissions process, Who Gets In and Why is your chance.
 
Who Gets in and Why is the Tufts application workshop – an interactive experience that reveals the inner workings of our admissions office. We explain the factors considered in the admissions process, look at real applications, and let you act as a member of the admissions committee and vote on who should be accepted. While Tufts will serve as the case study, the lessons of Who Gets In and Why apply to any highly selective admissions process. The workshop will show how you can best distinguish yourself in college applications.
                                    
We have scheduled Who Gets In and Why near you:
 
Monday, October 16, 2017
7:00 PM
Seattle Marriott Redmond
 
Register for Who Gets In and Why and come ready to see behind the closed doors.
We hope to see you there!
