Over the past week we were able to participate in a series of excellent opportunities to engage with individuals who represent a wide range of post-secondary options. Last Tuesday, a small group of DP students welcomed a representative from Nottingham Trent University (UK), and then on Friday some students enjoyed lunch with Magnus (UWCEA ’22/Northwestern University ‘26) as he answered their questions about his college experience. Also, last Thursday, students participated in two virtual events where they were introduced to the University of Cambridge (UK) and had a chance to see familiar faces who are currently attending a UWC alumni “favorite” the University of Oklahoma. Even Mr. Phil joined the fun last Friday on the campus of Braeburn International School where students were able to talk with representatives during the “Study in the UK” fair.” Then on Wednesday, a small group of students had a chance to meet with a representative from Huron University College at Western University where they learned about the Canadian institution and their UWC specific scholarship.
A great week filled with important events to help gain a better understanding of different institutions, while also hearing firsthand accounts from current students. Take a look at the list of upcoming events below to see what’s next and plan to attend. Local Arusha guardians/parents who want to learn more about studying in the US, please join us on Monday at 4PM for a conversation with a representative from a Davis UWC Scholar Partner institution who is very eager to answer your questions.
D2 Parent Meeting Coming Soon
Last Friday in DSS, I shared a lot of information with the Class of 2024 about this current admission cycle, and what they need to be mindful of as they explore their options. D2 parents have access to the information via Toddle and the email that was sent after class. Please take a moment to review the information and discuss with your child. In addition, we are planning a meeting just for D2 parents to go over what you can expect as you support your child in the pursuit of their postsecondary aspirations. Please save the date below and plan to join us for a conversation about a world of options with deadlines coming your way.
