The 2007 Fall College Prep Workshops are now well under way at a library near you. This is the 8th year that the Schwab-Rosenhouse College and Career Center has offered the workshops, and the second year of expanding its out reach services to provide more programs to a greater number of branches. However, due to limited resources, we weren't able to offer the programs to all the branches that expressed interest.
The program, which will run until mid-December, includes many
of the popular workshops from past years such as Inside the College Admission Process, Completing College Applications, Brainstorming the College Application Essay, and Paying for College, all of which combine to address the major aspects of the college application and admission process. A new program - College Planning for 8th, 9th, and 10th Graders – has been added in response to parents’ requests for more resources to help give their kids an early start on the right road to college. These workshops are presented by a stellar group of college admissions and financial aid advisers contracted by the Center. A complete schedule of the workshops is on the Schwab-Rosenhouse College and Career Center web page along with the biographies of the presenters. You can also find this information in workshop brochures at all Sacramento Public Library branches and in your school’s college and career center.
In an effort to continually improve the quality of the workshops, we have included a request, on the evaluation form, for permission to contact the participant at a later date to determine the effectiveness of the workshop in helping him or her to meet their objective.
And, as always, we welcome comments and suggestions from all workshop attendees. Although registration is requested, it isn’t required. Just come on out and join for this very informative program. For more information, call 264-2920 or go online at http://www.saclib.org/college/index.html
