College Spotlight: The College of Wooster

Looking for a unique one-on-one learning experience? The College of Wooster may be for you. Located in Wooster, Ohio (an hour south of Cleveland and ninety minutes northeast of Columbus) this Division III school has a liberal arts tradition that dates from its founding in 1866. All seniors participate in an independent study project of their choosing, culminating with the Wooster tradition of an I.S. Parade where all Seniors march and turn in their papers followed by a campus celebration. A private school set on a beautiful campus in a small town (Wooster’s population is 26,000), Wooster is a great pick for the student who really knows themselves and is interested in becoming involved with their school community.

Don’t Let Summer Pass You By!

While many think of the summer as a time to relax, hit the beach and do anything but something academic, summer is the best time to explore potential academic majors and careers. You can learn more about this at your local library. Take advantage of the down time to up your game. You will be glad you did.

 

Did You Know?

Looking to apply Early Action (EA) or Early Decision (ED) to college this year? Many high school guidance counselors require students to provide their completed application two weeks prior to the deadline. This allows the guidance counselor enough time to complete the school forms and submit them in a timely manner. For the unprepared student this can be quite a shock. Suddenly that November 15 deadline becomes November 1. The best way to reduce your stress level is to ask your guidance office what they need and when they need it. Less surprise equals a smoother process for you and your guidance counselor.
