We started mailing our first admit packets in early October and have stayed busy reviewing students for admission to the Class of 2021. (If you are still applying, that’s ok. The final scholarship consideration deadline is February 1). As students begin to receive their decisions, they start to think about where they would like to attend college. Deciding where to enroll may seem overwhelming. You will need to ask yourself, what are you looking for and how do you know you have found the right school?

At the beginning of this and last week, each staff member received a stack of Presidential Fellowship files to review. Some students also submit portfolios as part of the application.
Everyone on the freshman admissions team has a stack of files on his or her desk right now that looks like this. These brightly colored files can only mean one thing - Presidential Fellowship review is underway! When students apply to the university all their documents are scanned and we read those applications online as opposed to using actual paper files. For a variety of reasons, though, we do things differently for Presidential Fellowship, our full-tuition scholarship program. The application deadline for the Presidential Fellowship for fall 2016 was November 1....Click here to read more.
