G-17, Claudia Cohen Hall
249 S. 36th Streert, Philadelphia, 19104

Penn Admissions will host a seminar for Penn faculty and staff families with teenagers attending
high school to help answer questions about the college search process. College-bound students and their parents can be overwhelmed by the choices and requirements of college admission.

What courses are important to take in high school?
How significant are good grades, extracurricular activities, essays, high test scores, and interviews?
What should a prospective student look for in a college?

Admissions officers will discuss these questions and more with Penn faculty and staff and their families, whether students plan to apply to the University of Pennsylvania or elsewhere. The admissions seminar featuring age group break-out sessions will be held Monday, June 17 from 5:15 to 6:30 p.m. in Room G-17, Claudia Cohen Hall, 249 S. 36th Street.

The seminar is free. RSVP to http://www.eventbrite.com/event/6724205279. Please include in your reply the faculty/staff member’s name, how many will be attending, the student’s name and high school, and expected year of high school graduation.

Penn Admissions will offer a supplemental program in August 2013. If unable to attend in June, send information requested above to admrsvp@admissions.upenn.edu and request an invitation to the August program.
