Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Rice University, and the University of Chicago will present an information session to families from the greater Seattle-Tacoma area on Wednesday, May 8, at 7:30 pm at Annie Wright Schools’ Kemper Center.
The event will open in the Kemper Theatre with a one-hour presentation that will include a brief overview of each institution as well as information on admissions and financial aid. A 30-minute college fair, which will offer students and families the opportunity to speak informally with admissions representatives, will follow in the adjacent gym.
These five universities, all highly selective and providing broad-based education in social science, humanities, mathematics and science, reach out to seek not only academically strong students, but also a class of dynamic students that represents diversity in every way.
Although the information shared will primarily cater to high school families potentially interested in applying to these schools, the event is open to everyone. Registration and early arrival are strongly recommended for this popular event, as space is limited. Further information and a registration link are available at www.
