Thinking about College? Now is the time to start preparing! In University Prep, you’ll receive the guidance and advice you need to feel more confident and prepared for your academic future. We’ll de-mystify the college application process, share financial aid and scholarship resources, and help you find schools that fit your academic goals and extra-curricular interests. You’ll attend workshops and seminars on topics such as Personal Statement & Essay Writing, SAT Strategies, Study Skills, Independent Living, Conflict Resolution and more! Not only will this program help you prepare to apply to the schools of your choice, but it will open your eyes to the exciting and fun experiences that college can offer. You’ll stay in a residence hall on the beautiful University of Georgia campus, eat in the dining commons, swim at Legion Pool, and explore campus and downtown Athens. This program is the perfect starting point for your college career! Open to students who will be juniors or seniors in high school in Fall 2014. Space is limited so register early.
