University Prep Session A

Thinking about college? Now is the time to start preparing! In our University Prep Program, 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, and work to improve your team-building skills while tackling real-world problems that face college students nationwide. 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. Overnight students will 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! You should expect an academically rigorous experience that challenges you to think about your future, and encourages you to become a leader in addressing issues that will affect you during your college career.

Ages: 16-17, or students who will be high school juniors or seniors in Fall 2022.
